When I watch ITU and Ironman triathlons on television and the Internet, I rarely see any black people, and never do I see a black triathlete pro or age group winner. And being a national champion swimmer and generally a competitive athlete, it bothers me. How can I or a ten-year-old black kid visualize being the champion if there?s never been a visual before? Well, I just can?t settle for that. So this year I?m on a quest to become the first ever TriBlackAlete to win a USAT age group national championship. And with a good Ironman performance in South Africa, maybe I can provide the missing ?visual.? That would be something.
