Hi, i'm James. I am a Professional Triathlete and Coach based in Sydney Australia. I have grown up immersed in sports and competed as a division one college tennis player in the US while earning a Masters' Degree in Exercise Physiology.
I picked up the phone and called the race director to sort out our issues like the adults I assumed we both were. What I was greeted with was “F*** off you f***ing amateur.” The call continued with a barrage of vulgar language with me unable to get any word in before being given one final “f*** off” and being hung up on.
The last few months have been filled with some of the most frustrating days in my sporting life.
