Australia’s Phil Wrochna begins his new podcast series with an chat with the always-entertaining Josh Amberger, the sport’s fastest swimmer.
The founder of Firstoffthebike.com, Phil Wrochna, has been one of Australia’s premier triathlon journalists for over 15 years. He’s partnered with Triathlon Magazine Canada to start a new podcast called “The Life of Tri.” Today we bring you the first podcast in the series, Wrochna’s chat with Australian swim star Josh Amberger.
Amberger is renowned as the sport’s fastest swimmer, having led the way out of the water at the Ironman World Championship. He’s also renowned as one of the sport’s funniest pros – here’s how we described his post-race comments after his day in Kona last year:
When it comes to post-race reports from those who experienced tough days at the Ironman World Championship, Josh Amberger definitely wins the “most entertaining” award for his race recap. Any report that includes quips like:
“Clavel takes lead. Clavel supertucks. Clavel supertuck pedals. Clavel superwhatthef@#%. You’re going to die, mate.”
“Pace hotter than Bob Babbitt’s chair during a 6 hour breakfast sit at Huggo’s” is well worth the read.
