Oil Spill Triathalon

Yesterday was the Triathalon at Treasure Island. Originally a bunch of us were going to compete in a relay, but through a clerical snafu we didn’t get to compete. However, Sven got to do the whole thing.

The week before the Tri there was a major oil spill in the Bay when a tanker hit the Bay Bridge. No damage to the bridge but the tanker spilled 58,000 gallons. The Coast Guard determined that no swimming could happen at the Tri. So they canceled the swim and just did the bike & run.

Sven did well and ended up as 3rd in his division. It was a fun race to watch because the race looped around a number of times.
