I don't normally get into the subject of triathalons here, but you have to be scratching your head on this one. An elite level, full on tri event in Des Moines, Iowa? Wow! It's a World Tri championship and Olympic qualifier! That's just plain nutty. All these world class atheletes decending upon Iowa in the middle of June. Hope they like humidity and corn!
Anyway, that's pretty cool for Iowa to land that sort of event, yet it's an unbelieveable thing to a native Iowan like myself. I guess I'm just used to our rustic, rural type of viewpoint on things. I'm sure all the Iowa triathelete community is giddy this morning about the news.
.......then again, it is April Fools Day!
