-- "Silver lining for Whitfield" in The Province, Tuesday August 19 2008
Correction: 1.5-km swim
Unfortunately, due to my laziness in checking when it would be aired, I didn't watch Simon Whitfield compete in the Beijing triathlon. I'm what one would call a casual triathlon fan, so I wasn't sure when I read the article but a 10km swim seemed awfully long. Doing some research by looking at the Triathlon wikipedia page (specifically the Standard race distances section), my instinct was proven trustworthy.
This is infuriating
