Olympics 2012 Triathlon Conjures Up Thoughts of Greenygrey Evolution Theory

Howldy do, yes, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams with watery Wednesday.

Brownlees Training in Greenygrey

Alistair Brownlee took gold for Team GB, and his younger brother, Jonny, took bronze, with Spain’s Javier Gomez taking silver.

Here’s an image:

Sorry, there’s no time for the swimming and cycling today, but we will use them tomorrow to discuss whether a lack of greenygrey in the aquatic centre cost the Team GB swimming team gold.
