This week we’re talking to Nikki Bartlett, fresh off her win at Marbella 70.3. She tells us how when she started out it took her hours to make it through a swim at training camp—but she was determined to become a pro triathlete, and how she’s found happiness and loves what she does now.

But first, Sid Talks is back with the most important question: Laura Phillips 8:18 at Ironman Hamburg, Kat Mathews 7:31 and Kristian’s Blummenfelt’s 6:45 at the Sub 7/Sub8 project — what was the most impressive performance this weekend? And what do we want to see in the future?
