William and Mark were training hard these last few weeks in preparation for the Olympic triathlon taking place on Sunday 4 July in Athlone .  That’s right, you read it correctly, no need to adjust your screens- an Olympic triathlon!  A grueling mile long swim in the river Shannon, followed by a quick dash to the bike to complete a 40km cycle loop of Athlone town followed by (if still alive!) a 10km run through the town to the sound of cheers and encouragement from the adoring public!  If you’re in the area, come along and show your support- a great day out!  The Rockies will be nothing to these 2 boys!!
