Mile High Endurance Podcast

Mile High Endurance Podcast is recorded in the Rocky Mountain front range area in Denver, Colorado. 55 miles to the north is the triathlon 'Mecca' of Boulder, home of some of the most prominent pros in triathlon and related sports. 56 miles to the south is the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. The Olympic Complex in Colorado Springs is the flagship training center for the U.S. Olympic Committee and the Olympic Training Center programs. The 110 mile stretch between Boulder and Colorado Springs is one of the fittest and athletic populated areas in the world. I share these statistics, not so much to brag but to give you the listener context for what the culture and vibe is here in the Mile High area. ​The objective of the Mile High Endurance Podcast is to connect you to the triathlon community and empower you to achieve your triathlon and fitness goals. Each month we will take subjects that you are interested in and connect your interests with news, expert interviews, and information about services and products in a way that inform your decisions to achieve your full potential in the sport.

Climate change could push temperatures at the Tokyo Olympics to the 'danger-zone' for athletes, report warns

(CNN)Intense heat and high humidity could pose a serious risk to athletes at this year's Tokyo Olympics, according to a new report.

 

The report, published Wednesday by the British Association for Sustainable Sport, details the concerns of leading athletes and scientists about the health impacts of soaring temperatures in Japan. According to the report, the average annual temperature in Tokyo "has increased by 2.86 degrees Celsius since 1900, more than three times as fast as the world's average."

The Olympics are due to run from July 23 to August 8 -- a time when Japan usually experiences its highest annual temperatures, which are soaring even higher in the warming climate. "I think we're certainly approaching a danger-zone," Great Britain rower and Olympic hopeful Melissa Wilson told the study's authors. "It's a horrible moment when you see athletes cross the line, their bodies fling back in total exhaustion, and then not rise up."

Some events at the upcoming Summer Games have already been moved away from Tokyo amid heat concerns, including the marathon, which will take place nearly 500 miles north of the Japan capital in Sapporo where temperatures are expected to be much cooler.

Canceling Tokyo Olympics is 'essentially off the table,' says IOC member Dick Pound

(CNN)International Olympic Committee member Dick Pound says he believes the Olympic Games will go ahead this year and says the option of canceling the event is "essentially off the table."

Speaking to CNN's Selina Wang, Pound insisted that all indications suggest a "bubble" around those participating in Tokyo can be maintained but he stopped short of guaranteeing that it will be completely safe amid the pandemic.

"Nobody can guarantee anything. I mean, let's be reasonable on that," he said.

"But all the indications are that the bubble can be created and maintained and daily, or whatever the frequency of tests will be, will identify any indications that there may be some people having the virus that are there. They'll be put into isolation right away."

Earlier this year, Pound -- who is the longest-serving member of the IOC -- put the likelihood of the Games going ahead at about 75% but now says the probability is much higher, with experts learning more about the virus everyday.

"None of the folks involved in the planning and the execution of the Games is considering cancellation," he added.

 

What could happen if the Tokyo Olympics get canceled?

(CNN)With a little over two months until the start of the Tokyo Olympics, the possibility of a cancellation looms large over the Games.

As Japan battles a fourth wave of coronavirus infections and a state of emergency in Tokyo and other prefectures remains in place until the end of the month, there is mounting pressure from health experts, business leaders and the Japanese public to call off the Games.

Last week, the Tokyo Medical Practitioners Association, an organization of about 6,000 doctors in Tokyo, penned a letter calling for a cancellation, while a petition which garnered 350,000 signatures in nine days in support of a cancellation has been submitted to organizers.

Also last week, the CEO of leading Japanese e-commerce company Rakuten said that holding the Games amid the pandemic amounts to a "suicide mission" -- among the strongest opposition so far voiced by a business leader.

However, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has remained adamant that the Olympics, already postponed by a year amid the pandemic, will be able to get underway on July 23.

Organizers have released a playbook, the final version of which is expected next month, outlining a series of countermeasures that they say will ensure the Games can take place in a safe and secure way, even as thousands of athletes from around the world descend on Tokyo.

With the Winter Olympics in Beijing now less than a year away, officials have also said that the Games won't be postponed again and that a cancellation would be the likeliest option if it's deemed unsafe to hold the Games from the rescheduled start date in July.

 

What's New in the 303:

Gravel, Heating up in Trinidad, PX 160 Doubled Riders from Last Year

Thanks to all riders who rode with us at Pony Xpress Gravel 160! It was a great day, and we saw some fast times.

Congratulations are also due to Cory Lockwood, Jim Snitzer, Nick Gould, James Osborne, Mark Currie, Zack Allison, and David Griffen who all broke the men’s course record! Jonathan Cavner deserves an honorable mention for setting last year’s course record at 5:11 and almost beating it this year once again.

We had amazing growth and are happy to announce that we doubled the number of entries from last year. We also saw more participants in the160 KM distance than ever before, and a record number of female riders. In addition, riders came from seven different states to race with us. Thank you gravel grinding community for making all of this possible! 

We would like to thank all the Pro athletes that came to Trinidad and competed. Nearly twenty active Pro riders attended, setting another event record.
