The 2015 ITU Hall of Fame inductees were honored at a gala dinner in Chicago on September 17th, as part of the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final. We held a special Late Night Edition of Breakfast with Bob at the gala and interviewed the class of 2015 inductees, and a few ITU legends who were in attendance. Enjoy!
Emma Snowsill: Class of 2015 ITU Hall of Fame
Emma Snowsill was pushing herself to the point of exhaustion leading into the 2008 Olympics until her swim coach pulled her out of the pool a few weeks before the games and forced her to back off. Being more rested than ever, she had a gold medal day in Beijing.
Simon Whitfield: 2015 ITU Hall of Fame
Simon Whitfield came on to chat about his Olympic gold and silver medals, plus the huge prize money race he won at Hyvee on a day he thought about dropping out during the bike ride.
Michellie Jones: 2015 ITU Hall of Fame
Michellie Jones talks about getting into the sport that she loves so much, and why she is still loving the racing and training 15 years to the day after her silver medal in Sydney.
Peter Robertson: 2015 ITU Hall of Fame
Peter Robertson may have won three ITU world titles in his hall of fame career, but it was making his first Olympic team that meant the most to him.
Hamish Carter: 2015 ITU Hall of Fame
Hamish Carter took home the gold medal in 2004 for New Zealand with his countryman Bevan Docherty taking home the silver. He used the disappointment of not medaling in 2000 to fuel his training for the next four years.
Spencer Smith joined us to chat about his career, his amazing dad Bill, and how his rivalry with Simon Lessing pushed him out the door every day.
Bevan Docherty owns both an Olympic silver and bronze medal, and in this conversation he takes us through those races.
