Subject: Spring training camp in Clermont


Canadian National Team coach Barrie Shepley, along with a number of elite
and junior
triathletes and duathletes, will be running a "breakeven" 2-week training
camp in Clermont, Florida (30 minutes from Orlando airport) March 14-21
and 21-28.

Focus of the camp is volume and technique.  We will be staying at the
Vacation Village, which has a 25m pool, open water small lake, chalets with
kitchen-cooking, nearby fitness center and high-quality quiet roads, and,
hopefully, some sunshine.

We have elite coaches in each area, but other coaches are welcome to join
us with their athletes.  Age-groupers will be at the camp.  If you are
interested, please contact Barrie

Happy training.

Excerpt from Steve Locke's USA Triathlon Weekly Report:

USA Triathlon's Women's Commission Raises Over $15,000 in 1997 for Judy
Flannery Fund

Sheppi Farrar, Chair of the USAT Women's Commission, has announced that
commission has raised well over $15,000 for the Judy Flannery Fund. The "Judy"
fund was created to honor the memory of Judy Flannery, the USA's most
decorated triathlete who was fatally injured in April of 1997.

The fund benefits all women athletes within the United States through
educational materials, clinics and grants. Grants have been given to master
women athletes to attend the ITU World Championships. Grant recipients in
were Judy Carrroll and Susan Bradley Cox (both won their age groups at
worlds). Recipients are determined by both excellance in the sport and
financial need. Applications for 1998 are currently being accepted.

For those interested in donating to the "Judy" fund, applying for grants, or
learning more about the fund or the USAT Women's Commission, Sheppi Farrar's

Subject: Innerview with Leandro Macedo

Innerview: Leandro Macedo
Leandro "Good Guy" Macedo, the Brazilian most famous triathlete, has been
in Italy for a while, hosted by his bike sponsor Pinarello.
Mauro Mongarli intercepted him for Triathlon Digest.

- - So Leandro, why this visit? -

- - I'm here to make my new bycicle, by Pinarello. It's just few days, but no
holiday - Santos race is near!-

- - What are your goals for '98? -

- - Ironman again: The first edition of Ironman Brazil and then maybe Kona
again. After this, I'll be focusing my training for the Olympic Games -

- - Brazil is no more a brand new force, at the highest level,  but what
about the tri scene there? -

- - In Brazil triathlon has a lot of fans, good races and Brazilian governing
body is doing a good work even with younger athletes. They focused their
work on 2004 Olympics -

- - What do you think about Italy? -

- - Oh, I like it! And here I discovered a real winter to train in, for the
first time! I'm ready for everything, now! -

Note: Leandro trained in the snowy Alps, the rest of Italy is sunny as usual!

All the best
