Whoop whoop

I'm so excited to Watch Hy-Vee World Cup!!! Always my favorite event to watch by far, plus this year I've got a sister and a Paula and a Jeff to watch out for! As well as two Andrews, a Kathy, and a Kyle! Not to mention how sweet it would be if Simon won again!
Unfortunately the races are taking place while us homebodies are volunteering at the Victoria Youth Triathlon. My strategy is to set up my laptop in the McKinnon building, and then our team can do a rotating shift of volunteering and watching. Maybe be the pace bunny for two laps, watch for two laps, type deal.
I've also got my final nutrition exam on Monday, which means I can't just focus on watching the race, I'll have to be memorizing the functions, symptoms of deficiency and toxicity etc. for all the vitamins and minerals. While being a pace bunny...
Bring it.

Anyways, here are is a little clip from Triathlon Canada magazine online:


ITU Hy-Vee Des Moines


Many of the world's best triathletes will be in West Des Moines, Iowa this Sunday to grab their share of the $1 million dollar (US) prize purse at the fourth annual Hy-Vee ITU Triathlon Elite Cup. The winner of the men's and women's events will each receive $200 000.

The field includes three Olympic gold medalists (Simon Whitfield - defending champion, Jan Frodeno, and Emma Snowsill), the current ITU number one ranked male (Alexander Brukhankov) and female (Barbara Riveros Diaz), four former world champions, and defending women's champion Emma Moffatt (AUS).

Other Canadians to join Whitfield in the event include: Kathy Tremblay, Paula Findlay, Kyla Coates, Kyle Jones, Andrew Russell, Andrew McCartney, and Jeffrey Phillips.

Hy-Vee Triathlon.com will carry a live video stream of all the weekend's events. The elite women's race starts at 12:30 pm (CDT), and at 3:30pm (CDT) for the elite men.

So Exciting!!
