Hello Dino Il Bagnino (Cheesy Mascot and new Facebook friend)
The organising committee also began to release details of the entry. Over 8000 swimmers registered for the pool events and almost 2000 have signed up to do the open water.
So with the other aquatic disciplines there are over 10,000 competitors. 430 Brits amongst them. This is going to be a monster event. (even if it has the cheesiest mascot)
I reckon this'll present the Italians with a teensy weensy logistical challenge trying to cope with these sort of numbers and perhaps it explains why they haven't managed to respond to the frantic e-mail queries.
I'm predicting chaos and lunacy but it's going to be great fun, simply can't wait. I just need to do some training first.
