His about page is a contrdiction:-
"​​​I am Raymond Botelho, former professional Triathlete, who has been racing in Triathlons and Endurance Races internationally since 1993.

Then in the next “column”

“Your result is all that matters to me. Make mistakes and fail along the way, but be accountable. It doesn’t have to be an obsession. Compulsion or paranoia are weaknesses.
The truth is, it is that simple.

I live and die with your results.”
