As I explained yesterday, the duathlon is a sport which consists of two activities or legs. One is riding a bicycle as fast as you can, and the other one is running like the wind. It’s very similar to the triathlon, except that the swimming part is omitted.
The Cinta Costera is widely used as a venue for several sporting events. Biking, basketball, volleyball, walking, and jogging, are very popular. Below are several pictures of athletes desperately pedalling their bikes in an effort to grab the elusive gold.
I sat at one side of the highway and followed the subject in a movement called “panning” and clicked shutter the camera just in time as the bikers dashed by my side. Sometimes it worked, but most of the time it didn’t. I apologize for the low quality of the images, but at least you can see in a rustic way, what was going on at the Cinta Costera. Ten percent of something is better than 100 percent of nothing.
Having excused myself, here we go.
These are the pictures of the first part of the event. Tomorrow you will view the second and final part of the contest when the athletes make their last effort to reach the finish line. I’ll be waiting for you tomorrow morning. Please jot it down in your “To Do List”. Good Day.
