Thats me .... in the background

I am excited to announce that this week I signed with TYR Sports as my Apparel sponsor for the 2009 season.

Founded in 1985 and based in Huntington Beach, California, TYR is the second largest branded swimwear manufacturer in North America, supplying some of the world’s most famous swimmers and sportsmen. 

TYR’s elite triathlon team members include Chrissie Wellington (2-Time Ironman World Champion), Andy Potts (2-Time USAT Elite Triathlete of the Year), Becky Lavelle (2008 Life Time Fitness Series winner), Pip Taylor (ITU World Cup winner), Desiree Ficker (70.3 winner, 2nd 2006 Kona), and T.J. Tollakson (70.3 winner).

Given that I intend to race predominantly in the US next year, TYR are a great sponsor to help me become one of the worlds top athletes at the 70.3 distance, and I feel very lucky to have been taken on board and included into the TYR family.

If I can swim even a tiny bit as fast as the TYR swimmers are doing around the globe at the moment then I will be over the moon!!
