Three-time Hawaii Ironman qualifier Mary Eggers challenged Lance Armstrong to a duel in the pool for charity, and he accepted! The challenge has raised $40,000 so far, with the two taking to the pool on Saturday, April 28.

Shouldn’t that be part of the “Sh*t triathletes say video?” Welcome to triathlon Mr. Armstrong.
Five weeks ago I issued you a challenge on Twitter, and much to my surprise……. you accepted. Since then we have raised over $40,000 dollars for Teens Living With Cancer and Livestrong. A media storm has stirred up all around us and we have been able to shed a big spotlight on this organization and these Teens.
