Tri swimming

A swimmer passes a buoy in Lake Carolyn during the Tri-America Triathlon series at Williams Square in the Las Colinas area of Irving on Sunday, June 1, 2003. The event challenged competitors' ability to swim, bike and run. Both sprint distance and Olympic distance triathlons were held.

I know, no name. They only had numbers on their shirts and bikes. I had to go generic on this one. Yet another reason for competitors to write their competition number on both arms with waterproof ink.

Wonderful image. I love the reflected colors in the water. Beautiful! Great site, too. There's always something interesting here!

Hi Mark,
I'm a press photographer over here in the UK and I've been a regular reader of your postings for a few months now. I'm just curious as to how strict your newsroom is about names with images such as this one. Would they refuse to use it without a name? We're having problems locally with naming people, especially children, in our photographs but that's a whole debate in itself.
Keep up the good work Mark, you're certainly an inspiration to me.
