I assume you were among those athletes. How far is the swim portion of those races?

Do you bike next and run to the finish?

Doc Holliday 06-30-2012 08:30 AM

I was, I'm in the bleachers.

2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and a 26.2 mile run consecutively.

Here's a pic of the swim team my eleven yr old trains with 4x a week.

Each and everyone of these kids swam in the swim a thon this spring. 10,000 meters (10940 yards) in 2 hrs or less. 1760 yards in a mile. 5.74 miles. No breaks. No one puked. A few cried but perserved anyway.

The biggest boy in the pic did it in 1 hour. He will be representing Canada in the Brasil olympics He is amazing to watch

My daughter is one of the cuties in the second last row

Yep positive. You can't compare open rough water swimming to a smooth pool. Besides, don't forget this kid is heading to the olympics in 2016. He missed qualifying for London by 1 or 2 seconds. Possibly even only a half second. But he's only fifteen.

Doc Holliday 06-30-2012 02:37 PM

Your article doesn't state anything about any actual records, other than some were broken. I want to see his time for this 5.74 miles.

5.74 miles = 9 237.63456 meters

creeper 06-30-2012 02:52 PM

Look Dude!! I was there, I saw it with my own eyes. He did it in an hour

25 metre pool x 200 lengths = 5 ..oops kilometres. not miles. Still extremely impressive And the article states the record was broken by a SEVEN year old. 7 Seven is barely out of babyhood

And just because you're bugging me the next time I'm at the pool I will snap a pic of a posted article that shows the times of these kids

And the next time you are in T.O. you and I will have a freestyle race

Doc Holliday 06-30-2012 03:00 PM

Next time use that American smart phone to convert kilometers to miles. :)

creeper 06-30-2012 03:03 PM

Still a smart a*s

Doc Holliday 06-30-2012 03:05 PM

Yup, I love you and I know I make your life "interesting". You wouldn't want me any other way. :thumbup:

creeper 06-30-2012 03:14 PM

Why can't you Americans join the rest of the world and go metric. It sure would make things less complicated?

Yes Doc..You do keep me on my toes.

I have a stack of kids staring at me waiting for me to take them swimming so you can serenade me later
