Greg Bennett has been racing traithlon since the age of 15. He's an Aussie who lives and trains much of the year in Boulder, Colorado and winters in Australia with his equally lovely and fast pro triathlete wife and Olympian: Laura.
Greg has won six world cup titles and the world's richest triathlon in 2007 by winning all 5 of the Life Time Fitness Grand Slam series events. We recently had the chance to ask Greg our Top Ten EMT lightning round questions as he and Laura rally support for the US Triathlon team in their quest for Olympic gold.
We think you'll enjoy the question and his answers, which BTW, are below:
1) Who's was your Childhood inspiration?
To be honest, I've never truly had any one inspiration. I guess I was brought up in such a way that I had to always find inspiration from within. I've always set goals, I've always planned and I've always wanted to experience as much as I can. I've used the sport of Triathlon as a way to test myself, to go beyond what Ive ever thought possible. The sport has been a great tool for getting all that I can out of my life.
