News: IM Wales, Grand Columbian, Challenge UK and Metaman are coming up this weekend.
Age Grouper of the Week: Nick from Tri Juice sent through this weeks age grouper, Bob Powers. Here's what Nick wrote: I’d like to nominate 88 year old Bob Powers for from White Bear Lake, Minnesota for Age Grouper of the week. An amazing triathlete who proves and shows that you can still be active and doing triathlons in your late 80’s. From June 30th – July 22nd (23 days / 3 weeks) Bob travelled to three different triathlon events across the Minnesota (Manitou Triathlon, Timberman Triathlon and Chisago Triathlon) to be around fellow racers and do one of the things he enjoys doing on the weekends, competing in triathlons. Oh yeah, he took up the sport of triathlon at the age of 65.
When he goes by at a race, athletes and spectators that don’t know him are amazed to see him out on the course doing this sport. He loves showing people including his friends that it’s not all about sitting around when you are old.
