Games Of The XXXII Olympiad
Step 12 : Triathlon
In 1983, at the grand of age of 12, Lance Edward Armstrong started his sporting career with the triathlon. He went on to become the greatest Tour De France cyclist in history. Triathlons are made up of a swimming section, a cycling section, and a running section. Having only made its olympic debut seven years ago, the three different components mean having to find somewhere in Milngavie that could provide a good swimming section, with a cycling area afterwards, finishing up with a running section.
Location - Waterworks to Main Street
: The Waterworks provides the cleanest tap water in all of the world, so it should be safe enough for a quick swimming stint. After that the traithletes would run down to the main street, down to the Allander Sports Centre area, where the proceedings would conclude using the 1km time trial course. Using such an area would make it possible to line the sides of the streets with spectators. The swimming section could be made more interesting with the introduction of armbands.
