Mikael Eriksson recently won the M25 age group at 70.3 Portugal - in his first 70.3! He has made rapid improvements since completing his first sprint triathlon in early 2015. We hear about his progression in the sport, and learn about the kind of training that has taken him from swimming 2.20 per 100m when he started, to a sub 28 minute swim at 70.3 Portugal. We also learn about his bike training that took him to a 2.21 bike split (on a road bike!) when the winning pro did a 2.15. As well as being a competitive triathlete, Mikael is also a podcaster and triathlon coach. You find out more about him, and can hear his show That Triathlon Podcast, at his website www.scientifictriathlon.com.
