MAUI REVENGE – MY JOURNEY TO XTRI WORLD CHAMPS by Terry Todd 

Oct 20 2015

Last year I had the privilege of racing off-road triathlon in Czech, Germany and Hawaii, with both Germany and Hawaii being World Championships.  In both races I was beaten meters from the finish line by my New Zealand opponent.  Although my mountain biking was strong, I was an average swimmer and due to many previous running injuries, my run was nowhere close to where it should have been.  After being adamant I’d never ever train through a Cape Town winter for another international race (or local for that matter), having a 6 week break from training and with a fresh...

My Story - Crashing, Weddings and Winning

Sep 08 2015

It’s been an eventful and exciting year so far, but it certainly hasn’t been without incident.

What wasn’t part of the plan though was a string of unfortunate accidents that have taken some sting out of the season. Starting with a high speed crash while training in the Canaries, which left me a little worse for wear a few weeks out from Ironman South Africa. Recovering from the race and the injuries it was then on to...

KEEP YOUR HEAD ABOVE WATER

Sep 08 2015

KEEP YOUR HEAD ABOVE WATER Keep Your Head Above Water is a project which uses swimming as an opportunity to engage people, especially the youth, to become more aware of the needs of the homeless. The project was initiated by a young swimmer, Christopher Kleynhans, who refuses to be indifferent and was struck by the sadness of this issue when a homeless man named Collin, with whom he engaged frequently on the streets of the Southern Suburbs in Cape Town, died on the street last year. Children often don’t understand poverty and homelessness, simply because it can be a difficult...
