PRESS RELEASE

Derry, Ireland

For Immediate Release, 17 June, 1995

AUSSIES MAKE A MARK IN NORTHERN IRELAND

25,000 wildly enthusiastic fans cheered Brad Beven and Emma Carney to
victory at the ITU Triathlon World Cup in Derry, Northern Ireland.  The
Aussie pair proved their *** of the sport with convincing wins.

Ranked #1 triathlete in the world, Beven again showed his skills with his second win this
season, after Gerardmer, France, two weeks ago.  Hamish Carter (NZL) and Philippe Fattori
(FRA) were unable to respond to Beven on the five loop run.

Carney, winner of the 1994 ITU World Championships, in her first ever ITU World Cup beat
Isabelle Mouthon (FRA) the 1994 ITU Long Distance World Champion, who finished second.  
1994's #1 ranked Jenny Rose was third.

Triathletes faced extremely cold water in the River Foyle and a very demanding run through
the ancient city of Derry.  The city is the center of the Peace Initiative in Northern
Ireland.  The enthusiasm of the crowd proved sport can be a great catalyst for the
betterment of society.

The triathletes move to San Sebastian, Spain, for round three on the ITU Triathlon World Cup
on 25 June.  Other results from the Derry World Cup:

marketing office?

I don't know who the original comments were written by, but Id just like to
affirm that the Peace Process was already well underway in NI before the
ITU arrived.

The ITU and the organisers at Derry did a great job of promoting triathlon both
before and after the race with Junior Training Camps and widespread newspaper
coverage/hype and i don't wish to detract from their efforts - but I don't
think there will be any Nobel Peace Prize nominations for anyone involved.

There is a term in the computer business used to describe the sort of
chauvinistic attitude of some journalist and reviewers towards their
particular favorite products. In fact some companies stamp these three
letters on copies of articles that are written by these people before they
circulate them. The letters are NIH and they stand for "Not Invented
Here". Basically they mean that some people slam anything that is not
their "brand"....like a race that represents a joint effort between the
Irish government(s) and triathlon to promote unity and peace through
participation in sport resulting in a succesful first time event.

Even when the news is correct and on time, you find fault with it. I'll
stamp this post NIH.

The idea came from the Irsh federation. I guess they should be faulted for

I did a race in Northern Ireland a couple of years ago, in Portaferry.
It was a wonderful race, and it was supported by the local community
at a level unheard of in the US.  I'd have to say that it was one of,
if not the, finest race in which I have participated.  The Irish
federation does an admirable job of running races.

That said, I agree with Ruth's point that the original post was enthusiastic
to the point of annoyance.  Correct me if I'm wrong, Ruth, but I think
what people are objecting to here is the "hype" pushed by folks whose
background is squarely in marketing, not triathlon.  This newsgroup is
not a place where fools are suffered gladly.

Then again, SZAG, I know how you feel about peer review, so I doubt that
our comments carry much weight with you.

The issue Zag, is was it a press release from the ITU marketing office  or
was it a news report? I'll take the guy from Belfast's comment as news,
whether I agree with the politics or his prose or not.
 I'll stamp the latest ITU press release  as bullshit.

Ulster is the location of this race.  Has the ITU in its infinite
wisdom found the catalyst that has been missing these many years?  Has
the ITU been sitting on the secret to peace in this wretched war-torn
corner of the globe?  Will this perhaps less than grand diplomatic
corps be staging "world" triathlons in the middle east to the
resounding enthusiasm of the crowds of Arabs and Jews who are sorely in
need of any action that might result in the "betterment" of their
combined society?  To have such a solution and not put it to use
wherever it is needed is immoral.
