Sad story.

I think it is great that more people are getting into triathlon. But stories like this reinforce that even a sprint -distance race cannot be taken lightly, and that a reasonable level of competence in the water is required. I don't think there is any way this can be enforced by the RD, but I think it helpful that this board often jumps on a newb that seems to be taking the swim leg too casually.
