Anyone else slightly glad they're not racing in Nation's? :-)
Yes, but not because of the sharks.
I'm surprised no one made a joke about people in D.C. already swimming with sharks (lawyers, lobbyists, congressmen, etc.).
Anyway, this was way down in St. Mary's County. Even if there were a shark up here, I doubt it would attack during a triathlon. I would think that sharks would get scared off by the mass of swimmers. And there are police boats nearby. Maybe one of them has a tranquilizer dart gun or one of those bean bag shooters to use any shark that approached the athletes.
I'm not too worried about this.
Why do sharks make terrible lawyers?
They're too nice!
