Lads, lightweight rowing is still in the Olympics, and will be until Tokyo when they get binned because the IOC is seeking to remove weight classes in everything other than combat sports. I think he was a little along the track with rowing when he was at Sydney - given he went to junior worlds in 2001, it'd be pretty unlikely that he hadn't picked up a stick.

Having said that, Kim Brennan went from never having rowed to a senior Worlds medal in that sort of time period.

Agreed generally that he'd have been a good IP candidate in 06, though I'm not sure how good the sports transfer system was then at the tute!

Kim Brennan was also recovering from dating one of the most ordinary blokes around ... fuel for the burn!

Probably because individual pursuit hasn’t been Olympic event since 2008. 

I actually mistyped - I meant the Teams Pursuit.

Poor lass, an uncharacteristic lapse in judgement on her behalf.

Moving reasonably well - Tim Don stayed with him on the bike once Cam caught him, but he's been dropped by Cam on the run.

Interesting to see if he can hang on.

Impressive and balanced all round performance by Wurf. Sub 6minute mile run pace and cracked Don - one of the all time great triathlon runners - on the run.

Whilst Cam’s run split was only 9th fastest he was within 70 seconds of the 3rd fastest split.

Tyler Butterfield was impressive with a 55minute run - 5.30 minute miles all the way!

I’m pretty sure that’s a sketch diagram of Lance Armstrong’s undercarriage circa August 1996.

And he’s been training and testing at Nike headquarters as well I beleive - he is really focusing on the run at the moment - will be interesting to see what he can do.

Yeah a week ago I think I saw on Insta - wedged it in between run sessions.

 

Im actually really keen to see what he does at Roth this year - I have a feeling he has started turning the corner this year after Busso and Port performances - he almost believes he can run now.

For a night non german to with roth is more impressive than winning kona.  

The bonuses the getmans must have would drive them to bury themselves compared to bonuses wurf would be on.

Wurf sat down with Triathlon Taren for a talk on the weekend: https://triathlontarenpodcast.libsyn.com/im-kona-bike-course-record-holder-pro-triathlete-cam-wurf (interview starts about 5:05 in with the guts of it starting around 20 mins in)

Some interesting insights from Wurf - particularly the stuff around why he is better at triathlon than other more high profile cycling like Andrew Talansky.

Yeah that was a great interview. 

 

Also so his comments on doping were enlightening.
