Meet one of the team members competing in Ironman® New Orleans 70.3 2015!
Gordon Polozola (M 45-49)
I am from Baton Rouge, LA and have been doing sprint and olympic triathlons for two summers. I was a runner in high school and got into triathlon after started biking for the MS 150 Houston to Austin ride in 2013 – just needed to learn how to swim. My favorite things about the sport are (1) the people, (2) getting outdoors, and (3) actually getting back in shape. I was shaken from my routine after my father died — what was I waiting for to do all those things I had wanted to do? My goal in practice and for the HIM and IM is to push myself beyond my self-imposed limitations. My secret goal is to go sub-6 in the HIM and sub-12:30 in the IM (but my goal will be to execute the EN Plan to the best of my ability). I have a wonderful wife of 20 years and two great kids — all of whom put up with my crazy training.
