Mixed Relay now at the Olympics

I am very excited about the addition of a mixed triathlon relay to the Olympic programme, and look forward to seeing more races like this pop up on the local race calendar.

For those unfamiliar with the event, a team consists of 2 men and 2 women, each doing a super sprint triathlon (300m swim, 5 mile bike, 1.25 mile run) after which the next athlete is tagged and sent off. The event requires speed, versatility, and amazing transitions.
