The Hoi An Triathlon

Posted by Vietnam Swans on September 3, 2009

The Hoi An Triathlon last weekend

Last weekend the Hoi An annual triathlon was held.

Hard core Nicko was there wearing his Swannies jumper (he says everyone else there was wearing “aerodynamic crap”), Richie from the Hanoi Backpackers Hostel (who kicked the winning goal against Laos) was also there as was Micky Francis (the Swannies Pied Piper of Hanoi) and Max (devoted Swannies fan). Then, out of the dark blue ocean appeared the irrepressible iron man, Gus. Apparently Chris Robinson was also there but no one was quick enough with the cameras to catch him.

Congratulations to all of the Swannies who participated and finished.

When Nicko was asked, when coming last, why he was running along with his arms in the air acting like he had won the race, he retorted, “I had a bloody rash under my armpits”.

Apparently, seasoned hands apply vaseline before triathlons to avoid chafing.

Nick trys his new footy boots at Highlands Coffee

Posted by Vietnam Swans on September 3, 2009

Nick, loves his "very berry" shake, his footy and his new footy boots

Yesterday, Nicko received a new and special pair of adidas footy boots.

While enjoying a Very Berry Shake at Highlands Coffee, Nicko slipped out his brand spankin’ new boots and slipped into them.

For the next two hours at Highlands, Nicko beamed proudly. “Look at me. Look at my boots”.

Nicko only removed his treasured boots when it was time to leave.

It seems that Nick’s love for footy will now have to be shared with his footy boots.

To next catch Nick in his new boots outside of Highlands Coffee, you will have to come with us to Kuala Lumpur on Saturday for the Asian Championships.
