Well my life took a turn for the better this wek when my wife let me get an AUSTAR package. Oh my freakin god I'm in heaven. Speaking of heaven and pay tv i was able to watch the saints v melb game at home today rather than slink off down to the pub. This time of year is pure sporting heaven as we are smack in the middle of the European summer. World cup foodball, Le tour (more on that later), wimbledon, and AFL as usual plus any other god dam sport I wanna watch!
One sport i couldnt watch today was triathlon - the European Ironman champs in which 5 time OZ Ironman and Hawaii IM winner, Chris Mccormack came a respectable 3rd. The winner was a german named Andreas Raelert who is name to watch for at this years Hawaii Ironman in October.
In the next week or so I will have an exclusive Q&A with Tassie's own triathlon champ Joe Gambles who is now based in Boulder in the U.S. I know that Joe is recovering from an Achilles tendon injury and i wish him well.
Also watch out for Tasmanian cyclist Wesley Sulzberger who is riding the Tour de France with the Francais de juex team. Wes is from Flowery Gully in the Tamar Valley.
Yours truly is slowly getting fitter and hoping to get in some sort of shape for a race or two this summer.
Running is improving slowly, swimming around 10k/week and getting a few rides in. Still too fat.
