>You don’t have to like the sport.
You don’t have to even respect the sport.
But please, for the love of god, learn how to spell its name:
T-R-I-A-T-H-L-O-N.

  1. >i just learned something that i should have known. For some odd reason I always thought that the "t" "h" "o" & "n" at the end of the word "triathlon" had something to do with the marathon – but, I just did a google search and "athlon" is Greek for "contest" – absolutely nothing to do with the word Marathon (which of course is just the name of a Greek city). Sometimes the extent of my ignorance scares me.
