Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) August 30, 2013
Filtersfast.com, the leading online retailer of water filters and air filtration products, proudly announces their support for a North Carolina Triathlete selected to compete in the London Triathlon World Championship. Athletes from around the world will participate in the Age-Group World Championship races from September 11 – 15, 2013 in London, England. Filters Fast is sponsoring Greg Shore, the city’s “one to watch” Triathlete and one of the most competitive national champions representing the United States of America, in the London event.
Greg Shore is an elite athlete who does not race to simply finish, but races to win. He ran Cross Country in college, but after breaking his collarbone during his junior year in college, he had to swim in order to stay in shape. After falling in love with swimming coupled with his love of running and biking, Greg has been hooked ever since for the past four years. Greg previously won two races this year and continues to train in order to compete for two world championships in London. In order to compete in the London Triathlon World Championship, he had to finish in a certain position at the National Championship level. On Wednesday September 11, he will participate in the Aquathon World Championship (1500m swim/10K run). With no time to rest, he will compete in the Sprint Triathlon World Championship (750m swim/12.5 mile bike/3.1 mile run) on Friday September 13.
On September 13, London will witness a record field of 2,200 athletes competing from around the world, ages 16 to 85, for World Championship titles on a course located in Hyde Park. Athletes will compete on a spectator friendly course. Bike courses will feature major London landmarks like Wellington Arch, Buckingham Palace, The Tower of London, Whitehall, London Eye and Big Ben just to name a few.
Among one of Greg’s proud achievements is coaching kids on the sport of triathlon. “For two years now, I coached over 50 kids,” he states. “It’s the best feeling seeing them enjoy the endurance sport. To prep them for the three events that are done back to back, I have them running off of a good bike workout or biking off a good swim workout. We make it fun, that’s for sure!”
Greg is passionate, disciplined, dedicated and is an Accountant by profession. He has a strict diet he adheres to daily and this is something that many who know him can attest to. He is focused on his goals daily and if there is anything that becomes a distraction to him, he quickly finds a way to cast those things aside. “I have always been a competitive person,” he notes. “God inspires me, not just about being an accomplished Triathlete, but as a whole person.” His motto is, “Life is a journey and to live it with No Limits and No Boundaries is the only way to go.” When interviewed in July, Greg mentioned that his goal is to be one of the best American Triathletes within the next 3 to 5 years. Apparently, this stretch goal came 5 years earlier than planned since he is competing in the 2013 London Triathlon World Championship.
