Brett Sutton: an insightful talk

Sutton pulls no punches in his interview with Pontoon. One of the gurus of world triathlon talks to us about his training methods, his athletes’ plans and his view of today’s triathlon, and he even puts forward an idea for a competition format for a more honest triathlon with the best competitors. 

Laurent Vidal: "The worst thing about my situation is that I didn't choose it"

Laurent Vidal: "The worst thing about my situation is that I didn't choose it"

Pontoon interviews a unique character in the triathlon world. Vidal shares with us his vision of elite triathlon as an artistic process that goes beyond stats and the tangible. 

A year ago, Laurent Vidal’s heart, between uncontrolled electrical impulses, trod the fine line between the present and past of his existence. Two days later, he came out of the induced coma to awaken to a new, muddled and different reality. A year on, the panic of that day has been transformed into a sense of calm and acceptance of the situation. The doctors have not yet deciphered his beating enigma and Laurent remains (as they say in French) “without the right” to return to competition.

Delly Carr: a life devoted to capturing the emotion in triathlon

¨My favourite images in triathlon are the pictures that show the humanity within triathlon. The joy in overcoming the challenge and finishing, the agony of defeat, the push against pain and fatigue¨.

Every time elite triathletes dive from the pontoon, there is always someone clicking away. At many triathlon circuits around the world that man is Delly Carr - Australia’s top sports photographer and a usual suspect on the triathlon scene.
