I just got back last night after 12 days in Pontevedra on the TO team for the Multisports World Champs (Duathlon, Aquathlon, Cross Tri and Long Distance Tri/Aquabike). Bloody hard work but very enjoyable as the weather played ball with nice sunny weather (I have peeling skin to prove it)
I have to say that having been a TO on many international events this was the best organised from many perspectives. The TO team went to great lengths to ensure we had fair and safe races (yes - there were swim issues but these were dealt with efficiently); the Local Organising Team, were superb putting everything in place; the Volunteers in the main were fantastic; and the City of Pontevedra came out in numbers to support - plus all the athletes I and other TOs spoke to thought it was excellent.
be interested to hear any comments from any TTers who were out there racing.
