Team Tissink World Champs Camp July 2018 – by Kelly van der Toorn

After an unscheduled dose of the H1N1 swine-flu virus, 5 weeks before camp, I was apprehensive about how my immune system would cope with three full-on days of training load. I needn’t have worried- Natalie and Raynard have been working with me for five seasons now, and know when to push forward and when to hold back. For me, the camp would be about absorbing as much information about the course and potential changes of conditions,...

IMSA Training Camp – by Mischelle Jolly

It is no secret how I feel about my TeamTissink tribe….quite fond of you lot ;. … This feeling goes into overdrive when we have our annual  TeamTissinkI IMSA training camp. What can be better than being coached by the best, surrounded by team members from around the globe, getting a goodie bag full of GU nutrition, bottles and a 3T training camp t-shirt, in the best city in the world, Port Elizabeth.  Not much actually. Starting off...

PuraRace 2 Stanford – by Kelly van der Toorn

About a year ago, Paul Kaye made an announcement that had every competitive South African based triathlete sitting up in their seats and thinking ‘now this is an opportunity’… In September 2018, the world’s best elite and (affluent!) age groupers will descent on Port Elizabeth for the Ironman 70.3 World Championship, and from the minute I heard about it, I wanted to be included. After a couple of years of...

Jeren Seegers takes the win at Turkey 70.3

The Last 8 Seconds The hospitality (Gloria Sports Arena) was nothing short of exceeding all expectations. Completely designed to bring out the very best in sportsmen and women. With airport transfers, all meals and beverages included, the only thing that was not done was the putting together of my wife….bicycle. Spending time on pool deck surrounded by former and current Olympic champions. The reality of the life they live is...

Ironman Maryland – Kelly Stokes

Wow, firstly what a fantastic race. It’s a non pro event but the whole community embraces it and makes all the athletes feel so welcome. Even the local school children make handmade cards for each of the competitors.  My partner Adam and I had been on holiday about a month before but with 3 weeks back in the UK before the race I hoped to get in a nice final block of training. However within 24 hours of landing I was covered in a...
