Matt Chrabot-pronounced Shar-bot-just might be representing the U.S. in the 2012 Olympic Triathlon in London. Fresh off a win at the Miami International 5150 event on March 20, he came on to discuss the pros and cons of the Olympic and non-drafting style of racing. This is definitely a young man on the rise.
We have seen a lot of athletes make the transition from short distance to 70.3 and Ironman. Craig Alexander, Andy Potts and Mirinda Carfrae come quickly to mind. But not many Ironman distance athletes try to transition back to short course. But if someone was going to try to go from Ironman champion to becoming a 2012 Olympian, the odds would be good that it would be the guy who loves to change perceptions, Mr. Chris McCormack. Macca came on with us live to talk about how he has changed his training in the hopes that he can make the Australian team that will be heading off to London in 2012.
