Swimming breast stroke in a tri

If breastroke is a permitted stroke (which I think it is but haven't read the rule book for a while), you are well within your rights to do it in an IM if you want.

I personally wouldn't give a crap what other people think.


What if it was me that disappoved. Would you give a crap then?

But then wouldn't that rely on you knowing at least 12 sentences, then having to run through the sentence to get the first letter of each word, then having to remember what numbers of symbols you added.

I spose for some people thats an easy system???

Mr I -- Is it pssible to get hold of the split times so we can see how many people, if any, did a JSW/EI...

Fraid not. I can only get the information that is publicly available from marathon-photos, so race number, their name and overall time. No splits Im afraid!

There is zero chance they will publish full results now.

Imagine you bought something from a company online, you tick the box to NOT give your email to interested 3rd parties. Then weeks later they turn around and go, you know how you told us not to ... well we've decided we are now.

Thats the problem. They've backed themselves into a corner. Because some people may well have signed up on the basis the results weren't going to be made public. So they can't turn around now and say 'Oh you know how for ages we said your data was important and we respect it .... yeah we've changed our minds now.'

So like it or not, there is no way they will do it.

Psimon. Cheers. It seems pretty clear that there has been some shifting of goalposts along the way here.

Also how can downloading a certificate possibly be proof? Pretty easy to doctor the name. Methinks London marathon may regret not thinking this through in blindly accepting a certificate (or accept that an awful lot of GFA times are going to come through from Edinburgh this year).

One question I have is how did not many people notice that they werent going to publish the full results. If  they stated it on their website prior to the event, I can't get why more fuss wasn't kicked up prior to the event?
