IMTALK EPISODE 455 - Braden Currie

News: IM Melbourne is coming up this weekend; GPS at Melbourne; Challenge change their pro system.

This Weeks Discussion: Hypothetic question. If WTC were forced or chose to permanently cancel Kona and hold a world championship race in the middle east or Asia would you go? For arguments sake lets say the standard of age group competition would remain the same as Kona, all the pro’s would be there and the course would be suitably challenging. Comment here

This Weeks Photo: Here's a great photo of Peter 'Thor' Thaus looking sharp in his IMTalk trisuit. 

Age Grouper of the Week: Mark Livesey sent through his wife Caroline Livesey as this weeks age grouper. In the last twelve months Caroline has been dominating the dojo. She's won to IM age group titles and got third at the world champs in Kona. For this she won the AWA title. She's achieved this while doing a full time job and being a great wife. 

Interview: This week we have legendary multisport turned pro triathlete Braden Currie on the show. He shares why he's making the transition to tri and how he's finding it. You can check out his website here: www.bradencurrie.com

IMTALK EPISODE 454

News: The Thanyapura Competition; Cricket update; IMNZ news; Challenge Dubai update; Challenge announces Challenge Regensburg; John's ITU update; New event, The Pioneer in New Zealand

This Weeks Discussion: After this weeks big discussion around females in sport we have a couple questions for our female listeners. What was it about Ironman that made the sport appealing to you? Do you think your non triathlon friends would even want to do an Ironman? And lastly, do you think that men are trying to restrict you in this sport? Comment here.

This Weeks Photo: Here's a picture with John and Rick Laird. Rick is wearing the new IMTalk swim cap.  

Age Grouper of the Week: Alison King sent through this weeks Age Grouper, Nina Dobson. Nina is an amazing woman for a lot of reasons. She overcame a brain tumour to finish IMNZ in 2014, she supported a local athlete through a horrible bike crash, she's the president of the Rotorua Association of Triathletes (The RATS), and when she was doing the Auckland 70.3 she stopped her race to give CPR to a follow athlete who may have died without her help. Here's a piece in the NZ Herald about her
