The newly crowned Leadman Triathlon Champion, Jordan Rapp, was in San Diego for a Q&A with Bob in front of a packed house from Tri Club of San Diego. Jordan went through his pre-triathlon rowing career at Princeton, his move to triathlon, his Ironman Canada and Ironman Arizona wins and, of course, his comeback from a horrific hit-and-run accident in March of 2010.
Canadian Angela Naeth is having a great year in 2011. She took second place at both the Galveston 70.3 and the St. Croix 70.3. How good is she? In St. Croix, she held off Ironman World Champion Mirinda Carfrae in the run. That doesn’t happen very often! She followed those two races with a win in the woman’s division and a second place overall to Jordan Rapp at the Leadman250 Triathlon, which consists of a 3.1 mile swim, a 138.6 mile bike and finishes up with a 13.7 run.
