I know the above mentioned person is a very good swiummer and can do IM distance in the pool in a little an hour, but some as it comes to OW and races she panics and has to stop to get her breathing right
Blue Peter smacked the course, well up till the last 10K anyway, he said last night that he is now selling his bike
