Ironman tri governing body making changes to the swim portion or their races!

The changes are very good; FINA should take note. Almost all of the suggestions (notably the pre-race swim warm-up) that I and others made on this blog including some innovative ideas such as numbered buoys for easy mapping during the event of a rescue are excellant. Apparently somebody cares within a governing body that involves swimming.

 I applaude the World Triathlon Corp:

From Bloomberg:
"... All North American Ironman events will also include a pre-race, in-water warm-up when possible. In addition, if the water temperature is below 52 Fahrenheit (11 Celsius) or above 88 on race day, the swim portion will be canceled or shortened, World Triathlon said in a statement. ..."
