The Olympic Triathlon is now history.
In womens race Nicola has perfomed well and can be satisfied.
6th fasted triathlet is very good.
Another young Swiss athlete Monika Ryf it's a promise for the future and finished 7th.
What I have seen on TV it's all about, who is stonger on the running track.
In men's race our swiss athletes had not enough power to be in front.
Reto was after swimming behind also running was very tough.
Our Swiss favorit Sven Riederer was really suffering.
For as swiss guy it was too hot to run fast.
But congratulation for canadas Simon Whitfield! After Gold medal in Sydney now Silver!
O.K. I have and maybe will never perfome a triathlon so I can only say .... good perfomance from everybody in the race and they can say now "I have finished triathlon at olympic games in Peking".
Enjoy your time in California. In 2001 I have spent nearly a month in Escondido. Nice, easy live in south california. But I personally prefer places who are not so hot during summer time. I'm more the 20 degree (68 Fahrenheit) human type => North California is o.k., Nova Scotia (only summer till end of september) or Switzerland (sometimes only inside a house....
I hope your training will lead you to a good perfomance in Hawaii.
Greetings form the perfect training ground
