2008_07_nytri.jpgThe NY Times reports that a 32-year-old man died during the NYC Triathlon. The man, an amateur competitor, was about three-quarters of the way done with the 0.93 mile swimming leg (which is before the 24.8 mile bike ride and 6.2 mile run) when he was pulled out of the Hudson River while unconscious. An autopsy will be conducted. The Times also mentioned that the heat and humidity--and stinging jellyfish--taxed the competitors.
