Yesterday we were thrilled to welcome two special guests to our first Training Day for 2008-2009.  Two-time Olympic medallist Simon Whitfield (big kid in the middle), and pro triathlete Luke Dragstra (yellow jacket and visor, playing goal) volunteered their time to swim and run and talk to the athletes and parents about their experiences in triathlon.  

I'll write a proper post in a day or two, but I wanted to take the opportunity to thank Simon and Luke for volunteering their time (THANK YOU), and encourage everyone who attended the Training Day to visit Simon and Luke's sites to leave them a quick message of thanks.

Thank you for letting me be a part of the training day. It was very special for me to see Simon's training records, hold his medals and to play hockey with him. thank you to Luke also. When people asked me at schooland swimming on Monday what Simon was like, I just said "AMAZING".
