Age Grouper of the Week
Thomas Peoples sent through this weeks age grouper, here his email:
He's somebody who's been mentioned on the show previously, but unfortunately, heblanked you at Wanaka! Yes, that's right it's T-Rex of Tri, otherwise known as the 28 year old Andrew Kerr.
He performed at Challenge Wanaka with an 11:52, but then he backed it up big time with a 10:46 at IMNZ! A PB of 1 hour 10 minutes, talk about smashing it! On top of all that, he's also marshalling the IMNZ Champs this coming weekend. Before IMNZ 2007 he, unlike many people prepared for his first Ironman by entering an Iron distance race in the UK. Well done, Andy.
1. Not one single Hawaii spot in any category rolled down.
2. From 932 starters, 899 finished, which is the highest percentage of finishers since this race started in 2004.
3. 12 age-group course records fell on the day. It was definitely a fast year.

Website of the Week
Thomas put thought this weeks website, here’s his email: Website of the week, following on from T-Rex's idea is the http://www.140dot6.com/ website. It's all about self-supported iron distance racing. Getting you and a bunch of mates together to race the distance, have a great day in the process and just get really involved with all the logistics of planning your own Ironman. Where's your bike going to be secured for the marathon? Lake or pool swim? Here’s a discussion on TriTalk: http://www.tritalk.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=41004&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
