Mark Allen

There is perhaps no bigger name in the sport of triathlon than our guest today.  He went to Kona six years in a row hoping to win the Ironman Triathlon World Championship— and each time he came up empty handed.  Then in 1989— in an epic battle with Dave Scott—he emerged victorious.  From there, he would go on to win six world championships.  He also dominated at the Olympic distance, winning the inaugural world championshipsand putting together an undefeated streak of ten at the Nice International Championships.  During a period of racing between 1988 and 1990 he entered 20 races and won them all.

I’m talking of course about Mark Allen who will be speaking at the 2010 USA Triathlon Art & Science of Triathlon International Coaching Symposium February 12th through the 14th in Colorado Springs.

    As always, Kevin’s interview was fantastic. And, as always, The Grip was fantastically interesting.

    Being an old-school triathlete, back when The Grip and The Man were racing, this was fun to listen to. Also, being one of those athletes who knows how to get into the zone, who never gives up hope, and who pays attention to the little things in life, Mark provided great, well-supported affirmation.

  • "Great submit & Fantastic weblog! I'd definitely love to begin a weblog too but I have no clue where to begin. I possess the ability to do it (not that challenging around the technical portion) but I genuinely feel like I'm too lazy to publish regularly. That is the problem, should you start you have to go all the way. However blogs like yours inspire me to possess a go at it. "
