Simon Ward, The High Performance Human Triathlon Podcast

Catching up on the latest triathlon news * Tim Heming

August 25, 2021

On this week’s  High Performance Human podcast, I’m joined once again by our favourite triathlon journalist Tim Heming. It’s been almost 2 years since Tim was last on the show and that’s largely been due to the fact that during the COVID pandemic there's been very little triathlon action.

In recent months though it’s been really warming up and so Tim and I have a lot to get through including:

  • The British success at the Olympics 
  • The finale of 2021 World Triathlon Championship Series Edmonton grand final
  • This week sees the inaugural Collins Cup take place in Samorin, Slovakia and Tim explains the concept, the racing format, and crucially which athletes have been picked for each of the three teams
  • Looking ahead to the 70.3 and Ironman World Championships (the latter has been postponed since this recording)
  • GB has 8 medals chances in the Para Triathlon at the Paralympics, starting this week
  • Finally, we chat about what Olympic success means for the long term health of British triathlon, and we look forward to seeing new talent emerge at next year's Commonwealth Games in Birmingham
