| Could Have Been So Good...
Triathlon is a sport that lends itself to tales of heroism, personal endeavor and triumph over adversity. It's great source material and one day, someone will make a really great triathlon movie. But unfortunately, this is not it.

As a triathlete myself, I really really wanted to like this film. But the corny story, the cheesy script and the obvious low budget undercut the good intentions of the producers. And it could have been so much better with little or no increase in budget. We all remember training for our first race particularly if (like myself and those in the film) you're starting off from the couch and there are so many great comedy moments that they missed (e.g. your first OWS is always, erm, "special"!)

It would have been nice if the makers had taken inspiration from NBC's always excellent Kona coverage.

And don't even get me started on the hackneyed ending. You don't get too many "Julie Moss moments" in olympic tris, let alone two in one race!

Oh and PS - no one wears cycle gloves in an olympic! :-)
