One of them is a mate of mine, and we were on a ski lift in Austria when the email came through.
He's going and I don't blame him, all this crap about not going because you haven't earned lol. Very Happy


Good luck to him!

Definitely. When I was over there, bumped into a lottery winner and the guy was a true warrior who loved triathlon. I think it is totally right that a few non qualifiers get an opportunity to experience the race week and lap up what is a triathlon festival. Each of us have our own stories and we should respect the fact that our sport is based on inclusivity.

The sport may claim to be inclusive but it is far more exclusive than it would care to admit...
