Long-haul swimmer adds running, biking to his competitive repertoire

| August 02, 2011

Siphiwe Baleka (pictured), whom you will remember as the Prime-leased owner-operator who competed and walked away with a couple titles in the U.S. Masters National Swimming championships I wrote about in May, has made headlines yet again — this time not just for his swimming prowess. He placed 56th of 577 competitors at the Warsaw Optimist Sprint Triathlon qualifier for the U.S.A. Triathlon organization running and biking in addition to swimming. Take a look at the story on his website for more, where you can also find tips from his work as a fitness coach for long-haulers in Fitness Trucking, Inc.
The qualifying run puts him in contention for the U.S.A. Triathlon 2011 Age Group National Championships Aug. 20 in Burlington, Vt.
