What is your best strength in triathlon?

My run is going well at the moment.

How did you get into triathlon?

I swam competitively for a while, and ran a little before being introduced to the sport at local level.  I won my first triathlon and thought I'd give it a go. After about 6months to a year I decided to take it up as my main sport.

 
What is your ultimate goal in triathlon and beyond?
 
My ultimate goal is to compete in an Olympics and be one of the best in the world at my chosen sport.
