-- "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.
Just stopped by to say “hi”
