Hy-Vee Triathlon restores swimming leg
By ANDREW LOGUE • firstname.lastname@example.org • June 18, 2008
Officials for the Hy-Vee Triathlon announced this afternoon that this
weekend’s event will include a water stage for amateur and elite divisions.
That means the top men’s and women’s athletes will be competing for the
final two spots on the U.S. Olympic team.
Organizers feared they may not be able to have a swimming stage when heavy
rains caused the bacteria levels in the water to rise well above the
acceptable level of 200-parts-per million.
