"Wigan Rotary Club was richly entertained and stimulated by their visiting speaker recently.
Keith Robson, an international senior triathlete, who wore his Great Britain attire and brought along his extremely expensive track bike, gave our Club an excellent and informative talk recently.
Rotarians were impressed with Keith's amazing training regime and his super fitness at the age of 71. Keith also explained the demands and technicalities of the triathlon and gave tips on how senior folk should keep fit.
He also spoke about Iron Man which we could relate to having participated in an event last year.
We were also fascinated to learn about the financial side of this sport which involves huge amounts of money for some super athletes.
For any enquires about this speaker please contact Wigan Rotary"
