Coach KK: 9:14 PR! (Pros started 10 minutes ahead thus 9:24 on the clock.)
Multisport poses a long list of challenges, skill acquisition, learning about equipment, lifestyle structure and thought provoking educational opportunities. As a beginner, many wonder, "How do I get into this sport?" Cutting down the learning curve is an ideal goal to begin with one would think. The learning process, while fun, can be shortened with a coach. A great athlete does not necessarily make a great coach. Likewise, just because a coach may not have a stellar results record themselves, does not mean they are not a great mentor or coach. Often, pro athletes are able to become "pro" because of exceptional opportunity of independent wealth (so they have the time to train full time), or they give so much up, they get by day to day with meager monetary resources to attain a superior level of fitness. Few pros or ex-pros ever get to the elite ranks while holding down a full time job and have a family. Many of them have not gone from sheer novice stages of the sport without any exceptional talent in one of the three disciplines. They often come from an experienced running, bike, or swim background. These athletes often have a tough time relating or remembering their humble beginnings, or how to convey their knowledge to athletes. At Gemini Multisport, Coach KK has been there, done that. From a newbie without any national class background, Coach KK has moved up the ranks to a top/elite age grouper over the years. He is a USAT Level 2 Coach, and has a race experience level few triathletes have equaled. Qualifiying for Hawaii Ironman World Championships 11x (competed 7 times), Coach KK has been on the ITU World Triathlon Olympic Distance Championships (Team USA), qualified for the ITU World Long Course Championships two times, won multiple All-American honors, qualified for the World 70.3 Championships, has won dozens (overall) of triathlons and duathlons--formerly known as "biathlon"), has raced NCAA Collegiate Division II Nordic Skiing, and ran on scholarship XC in college. He also competed in the US Junior Olympics for Nordic Skiing, as well winning the FIS Junior division (18-19 year) State of Michigan Champion in Nordic Skiing at the High School Championships, and has coached high school Nordic Skiing Clubs. Coach KK has coached top ranked athletes competing in Hawaii Ironman, 70.3 Championships, and major US races as well as international competitions.
