Inspiring weekend


September 14th, 2009 by



The weekend saw the wrapping up of the ITU World Championship Series, with the Grand Final being held on the Gold Coast in Australia. And what a weekend of racing! – We were able to ‘red button’ it here on the BBC early o’clock both mornings to see live footage of the men and women ‘give it horns’, as they say in South Africa, and it was more than worth the effort in getting up. – Superbly inspiring victories for Alistair Brownlee and Emma Moffat; both really having to dig deep into the well for the win.  – It was the 13th victory from 20 World Championships for an Aussie girl, which I think is a fantastic statastic!

Congrats of course going to Will for his 11th place in what was a faster than rapid race!! And also to Hollie for her U23 win to add to the Junior title she picked up in Hamburg in 2007.

On the subject of inspiration; Blair and I are still heading frequently back to this below clip …. Danny Macaskill and his buddies in The Clan. Magic. And they’re coming to Stirling Castle later in the year. We’ll be there!
