What a race!!!

The Olympic Men's Triathlon race last night was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! I'm short on sleep today, but it was SO worth it!

CBC has the highlights of the race, which was close from start to finish. Canadian Simon Whitfeld amazed everyone with his performance and landed a silver medal. Germany's Jan Frodeno took the gold medal, which he very clearly deserves. The performances were incredible, and the race charged with excitement from start to finish.

To see the highlights, go to the CBC OnDemand page, select Sports, then Triathlon to see the videos that are available. Believe me, it's well worth the time!

Congratulations to all the athletes - men and women - for inspiring us to push just a bit harder.

And sincerest wishes to Lauren Groves who crashed in her race and ended up with a painful broken elbow. Let's hope she recovers quickly.
