PRINCE RACE REPORT: Prince Athlete Chris Parry Takes Overall 3rd Place at Tateyama Triathlon

Sublime Poodle Coach Prince does it again as CP (Parry) podiums with overall 3rd at the Tateyama Triathlon, Chiba, Japan on Sunday 11th July. There were 100 participants for the 25.75km race and only one coached by a Poodle. Prince’s CP was 16th out of the swim section using the Prince Paddle Immersion Method©, 4th by end of bike portion thanks to the Prince Aero Pose Position© (wind tunnel tested), and then just 12 seconds behind 2nd place using the Prince Zen Forefoot Stride Method©.

Prince stated: “I contend there is only one triathlon poodle like me a millennium”. Prince also said he is indebted to the Prince Director of Triathlon Paul Flueron, a world authority. On the race execution, Prince said CP crushed the technical bike course and run (5k in 20 mins) portions, but navigated like a jet ski with no driver in the open water swim (750 m in 12 mins). Below pictures are of podium and CP with Japan's pro celebrity triathlete Yu Yumoto who took 2nd place in the other race (41.5km) that day. Yumoto shared his pre-race dinner with Prince at Prince's local Ebisu Korean nabe shop, and also credits Prince for his sterling result. More pictures to follow. CP's own race report is here.
