On Sunday, the cycling and triathlon worlds were again hit with tragedy when Kristy Gough and Matt Peterson were killed after being struck by a car. Kristy was the 2004 winner of the 25-29 age group at the Ironman World Championships. She had recently made a transition to elite cycling and had her eyes on the Olympics.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
