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.

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.
