PROS Return for 5th AUA Tinman Rohr Triathlon

Two of the world’s most successful triathletes are to return for the 5th AUA Tinman Rohr Triathlon to be held on Sunday April 10th at Morris Bay.

Benjamin Sanson, known as ‘The Fish’ in world triathlon circles, won the first ever event in 2012 when he competed against the likes of Argentina’s Claudio Delpueche.

Sanson, who holds French swimming records of 3’47 in the 400m, 7’51 in the 800m and

15’00 in the 1500m is one of the world’s premier triathletes.

He has placed in the top three in IRONMAN events, top five in ITU World Cup events, top three in the US Triathlon Pro Tour and is an ITGP winner among other achievements.

Sanson will compete this year against the likes of Sylvain Pigeau, who is the reigning French age group national champion.

They will compete in the premier 70.3 mile triathlon (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run) which was won by Antigua & Barbuda’s Robert Marsh in 2015. Previous winners include Sanson in 2012 and Guadeloupe’s 12 time national champion Olivier Noglotte in 2013 and 2014.

The sports tourism event is expected to attract visitors from the US, UK, Canada, across the Caribbean region and elsewhere.

The non-profit event also features nine other events for all ages and abilities. Age group races are offered for 6 & under, 10 & under, 14 & under and 18 & under with shorter distances.

There is also a mini triathlon of a 500m swim, 10k bike and 2k run which is open to both teams and individuals. Other events include a 1 mile beach run and a 5k fun walk or participants can also team up to complete the ultimate 70.3 mile triathlon.

The non-profit event is held in honour of Jonathan Rohr, a former triathlete and student of AUA who co-founded the event with Andre Simon, Wayne Henry and others.

Rohr died of a rare heart condition, known as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) – a genetic heart disease which affects 1 in 500 people.

Rohr who was selected for the US national team before beginning medical school was in training for the inaugural event at the time.

The organizers now seek to use the event to educate athletes on heart conditions, along with title sponsors American University of Antigua College of Medicine.

The event is sponsored by the Observer Media Group, Premier Beverages, Horizons Supplies Limited, Jolly Beach Resort & Spa, Big Banana, Catamaran Hotel and Cedars Pottery. It is supported by the Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority and National Olympic Committee.

3 Thoughts to “PROS Return for 5th AUA Tinman Rohr Triathlon”

  1. I for all time emailed this weblog post page to all my associates, for the
    reason that if like to read it after that my friends will too.

  2. Trying To Find The Best Diet Pill?

    Trying to find the best diet pill may seem like an impossible task, especially with the multitude of diet pills available for purchase. Many people purchase a diet pill only to find out that the pill makes them feel jittery, nervous, or often has no effect at all.

    Diet pills frequently contain the same or similar combination of ingredients and rarely contain anything new, innovative, or undiscovered to the supplement / weight loss industry. So, how can you find the best diet pill when most diet pills are made with similar ingredients?

    One of the most common problems associated with taking diet pills is that the person taking the diet pill is uneducated about the dosage, effects, and promises offered as they relate to each diet pill. The research at website finds that there are three factors that should be taken into consideration when deciding to take a diet pill.

    Dosage:
    It is important to take the pill exactly as recommended on the product label. Some people choose to increase the dosage thinking that the product will work faster or better. This is not the case, and many people become sick in response to the large dose. Reviewers at website often suggest that the recommended dosage be cut in half to give the body time to adjust to the stimulant in the diet pill. After the body has adjusted, it is fine to begin taking the regular dosage as recommended on the product label.

    Effects:
    The effects listed on the product label are there because these are the effects that the product has had on ‘some’ of the test group. Some of the diet pill testers may be fine taking the product, while others may have adverse effects. The diet pill companies print this information to educate the buyer as well as to protect themselves from lawsuits. The consumer needs to read the label and educate themselves before taking the product. Many people who are sensitive to caffeine are surprised when the diet pill makes them feel nervous or nauseous, but this information is likely printed on the product, so with a little research these affects can be avoided.

    Promises:
    If you read the fine print on product claims for diet pills and other weight loss supplements, you will see ‘results not typical’ printed very small somewhere where you are not expected to look. The diet pills advertised on television are responsible for some of the most outlandish claims. The results claimed in these advertisements are often unattainable within the given amount of time outlined in the ad. Don’t expect to see results in two weeks like a lot of ads claim.

    Wouldn’t it be great if you could read reviews for diet pills from actual users of each diet pill? Diet Pill Reviews website has taken the trouble out of searching for the best diet pill. You can read reviews of over 150 of the most popular diet pills available.

  3. Doctors have many challenges to face as they are perennially surrounded by patients, diseases, hospital duties and over-extended or odd shift timings. Universally, doctor is considered to be a noble profession and respectable one at that, but a doctor also has to work under immense pressures, emotional strains and other physical challenges.

    A regular physician like most of us at some point face will have to deal with personal situations such as important family affairs, family holidays, sickness or pregnancy that may force them to abandon medical duties. At the same time, a hospital or a healthcare facility is also constantly faced with emergency situations that demand all hands on deck round-the-clock. Therefore, every hospital, clinic or nursing home is compelled to hire locum tenens or substitute doctor in order to keep the staffing under control at all times.

    In fact, locum doctors are the most valuable asset for the medical community because they provide quality medical care and act as a helping-hand in emergency situations when the medical facilities need them the most.

    Unlike regular or permanent doctors, locum doctor jobs are also ideal career options for medical interns and graduates because they offer a wide array of medical exposure in varied medical specialties, work cultures and healthcare systems. Locum jobs are challenging and flexible, thus an increasing number of medical professionals have benefitted from these jobs, so whether one is looking for a family physicians position or in a hospital or in a clinic, locum jobs for doctors are available at all levels and in different healthcare systems.

    In addition, being a locum doctor gives a medical professional the control over their working hours, location of work and choice of area of specialisation. Technically, locum positions are not restricted to general physicians but they are also extended to other fields of medical specialisations such as cardiology, neurology and many more.

    Travelling can be an integral part of locum jobs, and these distinctive features are a boon for many dedicated medical professionals who are eager to expand their medical careers with loads of multi-cultural medical experiences. The fact that locum agencies in the UK recruit tens of thousands of locums from across the globe in various NHS hospitals, private clinics, nursing homes and other public hospitals speaks volume of the popularity of locum jobs.

    Locating or getting a locum tenens job is a simple task as long as you are registered with one of the many reputable locum agencies. These agencies act as the middle man between locum tenens and medical facilities, and they also look after all the details pertaining to travel for locum tenens, accommodation and the nature of locum work.

    Thus, maintaining a healthy locum doctor-agency relationship benefits both the parties, and it also increases the probability of getting recommendable employment opportunities and businesses or vice-versa.
