WANTED: guide for a triathlete with visual impairment
A local Paralympic cyclist is now ready to train for triathlon! Shawn is looking for a guide (or guides) to train and compete with her for the fall of 2008 and 2009.
As a triathlon guide, you will need to direct her on the swim by swimming alongside, piloting the tandem and guiding her on the run using a short tether and verbal cues. A triathlon guide must do all three events with the triathlete as three different guides are not allowed under ITU rules!
If you would like to make a commitment to help this new triathlete get ready for 2009 Nationals and other events please contact Alan and he will put you in contact with her.
