ANNOUNCEMENT OF AUSTRALIAN TRIATHLETES IN NOMINATION TEAM FOR BEIJING 2008 OLYMPIC GAMES

Emma Snowsill’s dad sent out the direct press release from the Australian Federation so here it is. Before you read it, here are my comments that I posted on Slowtwitch: “ Just got this in my inbox – I cannot believe that they have selected Bennett – not because he doesn’t deserve it – he does – but just cause of all of the previous political hype. The others are not as much of a surprise…”

Triathlon Australia has today announced the six athletes who have been chosen as part of the Nomination Team for Triathlon for Australia for the 2008 Olympic Games.

The athletes include:

WOMEN
1. Emma Snowsill
