Well, I am a relay swimmer altogether, so if they cancel the swim it was a pretty expensive non-race day altogether.
I mean, they states USAT guidelines etc and I know the RD is not the same as all other RDs, but I have to think that WTC may exert some influence on this given that Waco had a cancelled swim. My bets are that unless it is below 50, it'll be shortened at worst. Of course, I could be completely wrong and all the conspiracy theorists on ST regarding WTC WANTING cancelled swims would say they predicted the water to be too cold and am ready to cancel it in a heartbeat (but still on race morning, I'm sure)
Like I mentioned her decision will be based on water and air temps race morning. Sure she could have us swim 1500M but that takes a lot of people 30+min. Then they get on bikes and itâ€™s not even 50 degrees and it could be problematic.
