IMTALK EPISODE 329 - Andrew Hassard

News: Races coming up, Bevan's random question.   

Age Grouper of the Week: Ed Hawkins sent through this weeks Age Grouper, Brian Murphy. Here's what Ed wrote: I've got an age grouper of the week too from this race, Brian Murphy my pal from the big apple New york City. He has raced 11 ironman race in the US and around the world previously to the ironman NYC chasing that kona slot. He has been soooooo close a number of times, missing it by one place etc. On Saturday he put together a 9.52 to finish 4th in his age group and book his slot to the big island. It always amazes me that I hear so many stories of athletes chasing slots around the world only for a race to open in their back yard there they go and qualify, brilliant - well done Brian you deserve that slot and enjoy the big island mate.
