The format of the competition is the same as last year that is 500m pool swim (16 laps), 24km cycle ride (3 laps) and a 5 km run (2 laps). So guys and gals, please remember IT IS A 3 LAPS BIKE RACE NOT 2 LAPS. THIS IS DUE TO ROAD CLOSURE.
Yesterday, I received an email from the Panaga Triathlon saying that the Panaga pool is closed down until further notice due to technical problem. So, if the pool is still closed on Sunday, the event will be changed from Triathlon to Duathlon (run-bike-run). I guess most of you competitors have also received the same email as I do.
A duathlon. That would be great. At least everyone can be flag off at the same time and the athletes will be more competitive. I guess Ahmad Fathi will be among the fastest in the run and with his superfast Cervelo, most probably he will be in the top 3 or top 5
But for those who have prepared intensively for the triathlon especially the swimming part, i felt sorry for them. They have trained very hard. Swimming every lunch time and after work, makan minum tidur di swimming pool (nasi tambah)..hahahahha.
What ever happen tomorrow, good luck to all of you. Let it be a healthy competitive sport. The spirit of the game. Show it to them that you can swim, bike and run...............
