2 years ago, we sat in a small bike shop in Cong co.mayo and hatched a dream….
(let me be honest and say it was a three year plan that came to fruition a year early, horses for courses)
The journey has been great… at times painful …. and at times learning quick… but at all times a happy one.
A lot of people have been responsible to for helping to deliver Irelands first world medal.
Covey wheelers as we can see from the bike race in the worlds, David o loughlins advice on bike selection and testing have been instrumental. Marion from castle-bar swim club is another who must not be forgotten for the work she has done.
I have a sneaky and proud belief that this kid, if we can call him that would have found a way to succeed with or without me. However I am very lucky to have been in a coaching position with Triathlon Ireland at the time, and to have views that the kids could relate too. A lot of the squad have been their to push Con, to motivate him, to train with him, to race against him and to test him.
The most important person and persons in an athletes career is his or her family and the support they receive from them. John is a driving force behind Con, his energy and belief in not settling for second best shines through with Con.
Chris Jones arrived in Ireland 4 years ago… to a nation with no view of high performance triathlon or triathlon coaching. I wonder if it was faith that I got injured while being part of that first squad and turned to coaching….
Chris has put in place systems and targets backed by a supporting board of Triathlon Ireland and support staff in Elena, Stephen Delaney,Lynne we have progressed our learning experiences and added to our own beliefs and talents to the soup of success.
This year was one about Learning through osmosis, we travelled a lot, racing a lot of the European cups. Making mistakes but all the time learning and knowing that Con has what it takes to compete with the best in Europe.

Racing and learning is hard, Costs are high, racing can be cruel but the belief and determination from Con to succeed was never in question.
John and I both spoke the night before the race. Worst case scenario john had a top 15 on the excel sheets. I told him my gut was saying medal. A 4:30 phone call, I couldnt take as I watched the twitter feed in belief and prayer. A 5am phone call from John to hear the screams and celebrations left me in tears. A phone call from Con while in anti doping with a single question….. Did I make you Cry… resulted in a bronze medal and a belief to challenge the world.
Its funny, no body else would believe me, I had the data, thanks to john, i had the profiles, we had the testing from David, we had a young Con who only knows one thing… only wants one thing. To race. Maybe we should ask Beaven Docherty to design all the courses
The biggest thing to come out of this is this. Why do Irish athletes feel they cant compete? the information is there for all to see. the coaching in Ireland is as good if not better than a lot of the countries in europe. find out the averages of the level you want to compete against, then find out the max’s in the area you want to compete and reach for it. Find a way!!!
There is a lot work still to do, Con and I, John,Chris Jones all know this.
The next step, will be made easier with the help of irelands top athletes the likes of Aileen,Gavin and Brian to guide. It is a great time for Triathlon and a great time for our country but even greater time for a small town in the west of Ireland called Westport.
Yours in sport
Stephan Teeling Lynch
ps : thanks for all the calls. txts, emails and messages…. your only as good as your next result.
In the 2000 Sydney olympics the German team pursuit team broke the world record in winning the final in 3 minutes59 seconds. The riders train to maintain approx 670 watts at the front and 450watts following for the 4 minutes. Very intense stuff. If it was a triathlon I think it would look something like a 75m swim with exit from the deep end into a 1k uphill bike into a 400m run across sand.
This is the Australian team winning in 2004 to show the effort http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vrwz4laGS4I
Getting things right for youth and junior athlete cyclists …. Actually getting things right for all cyclists out there !! ( This will be a good read for entry level 3 or 4th cat riders)
*most important thing is that they enjoy their cycling
* actually ride the bike
* good bike fit with good shoes and a good saddle
Cycling with an aim to chase a dream of competing at a high level is hard, there will be many set backs, there will be times when he/she questions a lot of things and this is when the simple love of the sport is very important. Nobody else but your good self will be there to make you train in the rain or get up and out before school. Only the simple joy of cycling can bring that.
For the month of October/November what needs to be done ??
If I had all the gear choices in the world my first selection would be the following
* fixie bike with multiple ring sizes
* power turbo or Srm of power tap
* Garmin hr monitor etc
However I have often asked and been asked, what did Kelly use or Merckx ??
The GoTri family is an all inclusive family of sporting hereos. Not everyone can win a race but everyone can help someone win a race….. being a friend or a training partner or offering a simple word of encourage is what GoTri is all about.
The Lads and Lassies of the Shannon Masters Swim club and The GoTri Monday Murder session at the ULAC too to the waters of Loughderg over the weekend to swim in the I3swim.ie challenge. Some of the gang took on the half mile,mile or 5k challenge.
Every single one of them achieved somthing amazing. The reports coming in via text message and Facebook made for intersesting sunday reading which followed with an emotional smile.
Well done to all check out www.i3.ie for a full report and results.
STL sent on for a quick update from two of the Monday Murder Survival crew Olivia and Liz
