Sportiva Events Ambassador & multi age group World Champion, Don Brooks, will be attending the Torbay Triathlon on Sun 8th October. To the relief of the local competition an ankle injury means he won’t be competing on Sunday week. But Don has offered to share his expertise with people of all ages & abilities taking part. Don will be running two transition walk-throughs at 9am & again at 12.30pm. The sessions are free to everyone taking part in the triathlons over the weekend. Don made up over 2 minutes at the recent Ironman World Championships in T2 (that’s the second transition from bike to run). In a Sprint Tri there is still time to be saved!
Here’s a quick summary of Don’s last month of competition!
- 4 Weeks
- 3 Countries
- 4 World Championship titles
Ironman 70.3 Lahti
World Triathlon, Super Sprint & Standard, Pontevedra
To top it all he limped through the last 3K of the World Triathlon Standard Championship last weekend due to an ankle injury, but still won the overall against all other age groupers. And he ran a 36:18 10K after the 1500m swim & the 40K bike! Check out the video below.
