Saturday Photo: Sid Ingerman Wins Gold for Canada!

I've mentioned before our good friend Sid Ingerman who was part of the Canadian team in the recent Triathlon competition in Beijing.

Sid, who will turn 83 Nov. 8, placed first in his age group for the triathlon sprint (a half triathlon), being one of 13 medal winners on the Canadian team. He always adds modestly that he was the only entrant in his category, but that doesn't detract from his accomplishment. (When was the last time you swam 750 meters, biked 20 k and ran 5 k?)

The pictures have just been released: that's him crossing the finish line, rather the worse for wear because of near-hypothermia.

What a guy!
