Hahah, you need to read a bit closer.

We AGREE that endurance is his weakest point.

BUt even his weakest point compared to the other competitors is still "strong."

Basically, what we are saying is that there has to be something else outside of the realm of these types of movements in longer events (e.g. chippers, triplets, etc.) to bring him down.

A longer type of run or swimming perhaps.

Possibly row may work (although his rowing looked strong in the last event). Cycling it seems he did fairly well on.

It is likely that as I said above it will have to be novel movements in an endurance type of format to oust him.

Good for the father with a young baby, and for the young man in university, of course an argument could be made for all of the athletes.

Didn't last years winner get 25 000?
