Shark attack stuns San Diego Triathlon Club
This morning a triathlete was killed by a shark during an open water training session in North County San Diego. Although I didn’t know the victim of the attack, as a triathlete who is a member of the SDTC, my heart goes out to his family, friends, training partners, and all those who were present on the swim this morning.
As an individual who has lived in San Diego for many years, I can tell you that this type of shark attack is unprecedented and having such a freak attack occur while an individual is on a training swim is absolutely tragic. A short write-up of the event is located here.
