This happened with a female pro in a penalty tent at an IM race in the past. IIRC, the head referee was pretty pissed off (ha) about it and read her the riot act. (Which may be where the no peeing rule came from).

Totally agree. Swim lines for a TT start are always one big piss river, and I tend to contribute.

The only thing I question here is it appears porta-potties were right there.

Yes. I was in Nooga as well and there were porta-potties right there. In more than one place very close by.

Yes, it's always an odd feeling standing there talking to someone secretly pissing down your leg.

While spectating IM Wisconsin a couple years ago, I (and dozens of spectators and participants) witnessed an age grouper piss himslelf while walking out of Monona Terrace outside T2. All around him were porta loos - he could have walked a few steps and finished up in one of them. It was embarrasing to watch. I'm sure some of the athletes walked through it and it was done in the open, not behind the closed doors of a transition area.
.

Peeing on yourself on the run is pretty common. What's wrong with that?

Just be careful of hot races. Wouldn't want a "trucker bomb" situation in transition.

IMCHOO TT line was very wet. All They had to do was take 2 steps to the right and they could have pee'd on the grass. But they stood right on the pathway and pee'd. I saw this in IMLOU so I stopped at Dollar General and got a $1 pair of flip flops.

Yes. I had the decency at NOLA and milwaukee to at least pee on the grass

No. The head ref was pissed on! *rim shot*

I checked the results, I had my fingers crossed that there was a Bellamy in the race.

Doubt they were very busy for the 4th finisher overall at T2 though.

this sort of conduct by the Professional athletes or anyone else should
not be tolerated.

I see you take urine very seriously.

No. Gate is hauled out and attached by simpleton journalists to things every time they want to try and imply it's a bigger thing than it is. It jumped the shark about two days after Watergate was over and anyone using it from here on out should be dragged over sandpaper and salt. Twice.

A pro that trains on average 20+ ours a week, 5-1/2 hours into a race, performed at a upper zone 2 intensity is redlined? Really?

I know I had a pretty clear mind as I pissed on the bike around mile 108 in my IM. Talking to others later... the same downhill was a common place to "relax" near the end of the ride.


That being said... given the nature of the pace line the pro's were in, peeing on the bike might have been a little challenging without falling back to the end of the line.

Now it's a Kerfuffle with a capital K.

Pissing in changing tent chair<punching woman racer<pissing on change tent floor<being paced by gorilla<drafting.

Just for the record ...

When I went into the changing tent at Metaman at Bintan in Indonesia (half and full races, huge prize purses, always a good pro lineup) ...

It was T2 and someone had just smoked an entire cigarette in the tent. The butt was on the floor, the tent was full of smoke, and I honestly would much rather get peed on than have to breathe that shit while changing. I went outside once I had the particulars covered over to finish changing (despite that being against the rules).

I know this is SE Asia, but come on, people!

It was raining outside. However, I did used to be a smoker, and believe me a true addict can get one lit and smoked in a hurricane if need be. So WTF?!

Smoking in a tent wrong. So what is your point? Comparing gauche behavior? Urinating in a changing tent is unacceptable regardless. Especially when there were bathrooms right there. This guy was wrong. He created a safety hazard for other competitors and was inconsiderate beyond belief.

The guy should have at the least received a penalty and at best DQ'd. If athletes can't act like human beings, if their race in their mind supersedes all else, or if his brain was "too red-lined" as someone suggested then I suggest that he might want to find a new profession.
This guy is supposedly doing his job. Would it be acceptable for a professional basketball player to urinate while sitting on the bench?
