Greetings from Bob
In a few weeks we’ll be watching the fifth-ever Olympic Triathlon. Being in Sydney for that first Olympic Triathlon was one of the highlights of my life. Not only were the crowds off the charts, a sport that had only been created 26 years earlier in San Diego was selected to be the opening event of the games, and the Olympic coverage showcased triathlon to the world. The response to our sport - and our athletes - helped fuel the sport’s explosive growth throughout the next decade.
In this issue we showcase my conversations with six of triathlon’s Olympic Gold Medalists as well as some of 2016’s favorites. We also look back at the amazing Hunter Kemper who went through hell just to make it to his fourth straight Olympics in 2012.
The Olympics are about beating the odds, never giving up, and having the perseverance to stay the course, no matter what. That’s exactly why Hunter’s journey to London was so special.
