Scott Emmens - triathlon and multisport athlete
Multisport: noun: an unanswerable desire for lengthy self-mutilation combined with an unhealthy self-absorption origin: unknown but practised frequently in New Zealand and other parts of the world.
The Speights Coast to Coast is New Zealand's most favoured Multisport Event. It is held every February in the South Island. Most competitors take two days to complete a course that runs from Kumara on the West Coast to Sumner on the East Coast. The course involves a 2.8km run, 55km road bike, 30km mountain run, 16km road bike, 67km river kayak and finishes with a 70km road bike. If you have an advanced form of self-mutilation then the one-day event, known fondly as "The Longest Day," is the challenge for you. Scott was one of the few one day competitors to complete the race in 2004 due to the river being closed to slower contestants as a result of huge rains.
