I first took up triathlon because I was fat and needed motivation to lose it. The people who have had the most influence on my sporting career are my parents. Per week, I spend three hours swim training, six hours biking, and four hours running. My personal best swim time (750m) is 14 minutes, bike (20km) is 39 minutes, and run (5km) is 25 minutes. My favorite ITU race was Vancouver 2008, because it was a good multi-lap course.My triathlon goal is to win my 5th straight triathlon world championship. Outside of triathlon, I want to continue to grow my company and travel. In 1998, I was part of the paralympic alpine ski team. The biggest obstacle that I have overcome is to find the motivation to suffer hard enough in training to win races. One thing the triathlon world doesn’t know about me is that I hold multiple patents for products in the development of prosthetic devices.
