Mooloolaba Men's ITU Triathlon World Cup 2014

Hi all

Following up on my previous post on the 2014 Mooloolaba Women's ITU Triathlon World Cup, here's my post on the 2014 Mooloolaba Men's ITU Triathlon World Cup also held on Saturday 15 March 2014.

Yep - the swim leg was again moved from the surf to the river due to heavy swell, so we witnessed evidence of some shallow water in parts of the swim leg. :)
