Olympic Trials in Omaha

So we are off to the trials in Omaha. Roque Santos and his side kick Dean "Deano" Jackson will be on hand to show, demo and talk bout our Nero swimskins. The past few weeks have had the blueseventy team running arond the globe holding test sessions in Italy, Germany, U.K, USA and many more places. Omaha will give us chance to enjoy the racing and support the athletes who have the Olympic dream. We will have 1000 demo suits at the event, so please feel free to approach us and ask us about the suits.

We will be based two blocks away from the pool:

02 Dodge
Omaha, NE 68102

We will be joined by our friends from floswimming who will be working on some video footage of athletes, the event and the Nero suit. Look also out for Roque Santos performing an underwater trick or two. We will be poolside in the warm up pool and you should not miss us in our fine cowboy hats. But just in case, Dean's cell phone is 206-295-5300 and Roque's cell phone is 925-699-2414.

All nero suits can be used for 1 race at a discretional fee of $20 (The money will be donated to "Make a Splash" the charity for bringing the pool to the children)

See you there...and watch this space.


Dean should not be missed

Nice Nero review on GoSwim

The blueseventy nero was recently reviewed on goswim.tv and the tester Glenn Mills seemed to be quite smitten with the suit.

We especially liked the closing paragraph:

"Even the Blueseventy won't swim for me. However, the 5 times I've used it in a race have been far more successful than I ever would have imagined going into the meet. There's a new world of swimming rising. We'll all witness it this summer in China, only this time, we ALL have the opportunity to take part. We can all swim a little faster than we thought we should, and it's a lot of fun. Of course, the more we use them, the more training we'll have to do to go faster. Ultimately, this cycle will level out, and we'll be back to the usual grind of learning and training for improvement. Until then... you can pry my BLUESEVENTY from my cold, shriveled, pruned fingers... of course, if you can get to the zipper. Lil' help, please?"

Guy's Windsor Tri DOMINATION!

video


Guy was pretty scared about being the last person to cross the line at Windsor as he was racing in the Pro field. Amazingly, he didn't finish last.

Terenzo Bozzone wins Ironman 70.3 Kansas

Another fantastic race for blueseventy athlete Terenzo Bozzone as he rocketed to a win at the inaugural Ironman 70.3 Kansas. So that actually means 2 wins in 3 starts, and without the silly penalty at Eagleman 70.3, Terenzo could easily have been 3 for 3.

But 2 wins and one runner-up spot ain't bad.

Congrats Terenzo

Congratulations to Bevan Docherty, Sarah Haskins and Samantha Warriner

blueseventy athlete Bevan Docherty (NZL) won a silver medal at the 2008 Elite Triathlon World Championships in Vancouver, Canada and fellow blueseventy athletes Sarah Haskins (USA) and Samantha Warriner (NZL) took the silver and bronze medals in the Elite women's race. We are super happy for them and proud beyond believe.

Pieter Van Den Hoogenband test

Our blueseventy pointzero & nero swim skins have seen quite a bit of open water time and have really proven themselves over and over so far. Many though wondered how well these super fast swim skins would do in the pool and chlorine. To answer this question we recently got a few decently well known swimmers like Pieter Van Den Hoogenband to test them out and wow what a success it was.


Peter Van Hoogenband in the new blueseventy nero comp at the Dutch National Championships.





Oh, for the record he swam 1.45.9 for 200m, his fastest time in six years. :-)

After the fastest swim of the day, blueseventy athlete Joanna Zeiger dominated all the way to the finish at Ironman Eagleman 70.3 in Cambridge, Maryland. Second place was blueseventy athlete Dede Griesbauer and that made for a nice blueseventy 1 and 2 finish.

Terenzo Bozzone was the runner-up in the men's race at Eagleman 70.3. He exited the water with the lead pack of men , including fellow blueseventy athlete Bryan Rhodes.

Congratulations Joanna, Dede, Terenzo and Bryan.

Potts and Cave rock Escape from Alcatraz

blueseventy athletes Andy Potts and Leanda Cave had fantastic races at the 2008 Accenture Escape from Alcatraz triathlon and repeated their titles from 2007. The race is well known for a challenging course all together but especially for a very tough and cold swim.

Alistair Brownlee you rock

Alistair Brownlee (GBR) won the 2008 ITU under 23 World Championships in stunning fashion and we are glad to know that his blueseventy helix wetauit served him well along the way.

You go Alistair.

In the news

The local news in Coeur D'Alene mentioned current 49 degrees water temperatures and that might be a bit nippy for the upcoming Ironman CDA. That seemed to be no big deal for athlete Scott Burkhardt as he seems to be quite happy in his blueseventy wetsuit and neoprene hat when he was interviewed for the story.
