Thursday morning was the rescheduled practice swim so the Zwift Academy Tri team headed to Sand Hollow State Park to suit up and test the water – and it did not disappoint (but brrr, it is chilly!). Then in the afternoon we were joined by Olympic Gold Medallist and 2xITU World Champion, Gwen Jorgensen, at the Zwift House for a run with the team. Check out the action below:
Only 3 days to go – the countdown is on! With the race fast approaching, the athletes are focusing on getting in their final sessions in preparation for the World Championships. Kelly O'Mara, editor-in-chief at Triathlete Magazine came by the Zwift House to chat with some of the athletes and then we wrapped the day with movie night. Check out the action below.
