I find the following points to be an interesting aside to the swim-bike-
run length discussion:

Quote:

>ELITE MEN
>1  Spencer Smith     (GB)     18.04 - 1.02.26 - 30.50 = 1.51.20

Fastest swim, bike and run in the top ten.

Quote:

>ELITE WOMEN
>1  Michellie Jones   (AUS)    19.43 - 1.12.20 - 35.38 = 2.07.41

Only the fastest swim split in the top ten.

Quote:

>1  Sarah Harrow      (NZ)     19.48 - 1.13.02 - 40.33 = 2.13.23

Only the fastest swim and bike splits in the top ten.

Not quantitative, just interesting.

Is this guy phenomenal or what?  In Canada (Muskoka Open) he did the same damn
thing, fastest splits overall in each event (well, 2nd fastest swim to Nate by
2 seconds).   He's got a great support crew (his Dad is at every race with him,
rooting for all the elite competitors, not just him)

The fastest run time in the World's was 30.30 by a British age-grouper.
Spencer had the second fastest run and fastest cycle . He came out
of the swim in a large group. To ride away from this group and then
gain even more time on the run was amazing.

 Yesterday evening the Toronto based sports channel, TSN, aired a tape of the
 Muskoka race. They led off with interviews with Spencer Smith and other top
 triathletes (who were asked about Spencer Smith). They (Mike Pigg, Greg Welch,
 Andrew MacMartin) all agreed, Spencer Smith is one impressive triathlete.

 He's young, big, strong, very capable in all three events, and has a killer
 instinct. He talked about how he likes to blow by his competitors, and how
 he likes to tell them how good and strong he feels while doing so.

 In this race, after initially dueling with Nate Llerandi for a couple of
 hundred meters, he settled in to Nate's slip stream. By the 500 meter mark
 they seemed to be about 50M ahead of the next group! They got out of the
 water over a minute ahead of the third place swimmer (I believe it was the
 poor fellow who powered in to the dock with his nose - ouch!). This margin
 (1.?? minutes) was added to slightly over the bike and run - I believe Smith
 came in less than two minutes ahead of Welch, who used a strong running leg
 to pass Pigg, Frank Clarke, and a couple of others. Smith was being inter-
 viewed mere seconds after crossing the finish line and seemed hardly out of
 breath. He said, other than having to get off his bike to avoid a dog (and
 losing 20-30 seconds) everything went well!! Yikes!

 With Simon Lessing, and now Spencer Smith, the Brits seem pretty well set for
 the next few years...

 In the women's race, Carol Montgomery out-dueled Karen Smyers on the run to take
 the race by about 20 seconds. BUT, the most impressive aspect of this race, for
 me, was the performance of Erin Baker. Although one could see that she wasn't yet
 as lean as in the past (4 and a half months after giving birth) she did come in
 first off the bike and managed to hold on for third place!

 The commentator mentioned that she had her sights on Hawaii. It would be great
 to see her win there... probably too much to ask for, but it would be great.
