CTeamer Susan Williams won the Olympic Bronze medal in Triathlon despite colliding with the straw bales at the bottom of the course's major hill. Miraculously, the crash delayed her only a few seconds.
About her use of CompuTrainer in preparing for the race she commented,
"I am a little embarrassed about that crash, but at least it made the whole race a bit more exciting! And I had several sessions on the CompuTrainer with the Athen's course prior to the race. As I didn't make the World Cup Tri in Athens last fall, it was the next best thing to getting used to the terrain on the Olympic Course, and I think it really helped me."
