G3 August Meeting, Time to SWIM!

  • 20 Aug 2012
  • 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Lifesouth

After watching the swimming in the Olympics all we can do is wonder, "how do they get that fast" so we decided to focus our August meeting on SWIMMING! 

Our Speakers will be Karyn Austin and Ricky Bell. They will talk about the benefits of swim pace recognition in practice and how that translates to competition. 

Karyn has been a USA Triathlon Level 2 Certified Coach for 10 years and has coached swimming for over 20 years. Karyn has been a 2 time member of Team USA for Olympic Distance Triathlon, all american ranked triathlete, and has also competed at the Ironman distance. 

Ricky Bell is a life long endurance competitor with a swimming background. After his wife introduced him into cycling, he began competing in triathlons, and has loved the multi-discipline aspects of training. He consistently finishes his races in the top five percent for the swim splits. 

Ricky is also a math teacher at Kanapaha Middle School and was recently awarded the KMS Teacher of the Year award. 

With five Half-Ironmans under his belt, he is currently training for the 2012 Arizona Ironman, with the goal of qualifying for the Kona World Championship.
