I have to say that I have the greatest admiration for anyone who can physically do what Tony Abbott did yesterday:
Experts say Mr Abbott is likely to wake feeling mentally strong today after the gruelling effort of yesterday’s Port Macquarie Ironman.
The 52-year-old Opposition Leader crossed the finish line of the 226km Port Macquarie Ironman race in 13 hours 57 minutes and 1 second. His split times were: swim 1:27:21, bike 6:43:06; and run 5:28:02.
I bet that the minions of the Labor Party are wondering just how they can counter the positive message that Tony’s performance gives to the sports mad voters who respect the ability to run, swim or to throw things more than any of that namby pamby intellectual stuff….
