athlete, proud father of two small children... 30 year old Tom Jeffrey
knows what it means to work hard. But now he also knows what it means to
work smart. This past year Tom has been using Super Sport Systems' suite
of training tools to
prepare for the Duathlon World Championships in Geel, Belgium on May 30, where
he expects to make a significant improvement in his already impressive world ranking.
||"I have been a
competitive distance runner for 17 years. After
college I focused primarily on the marathon.
In 2000 I finished 19th in the Olympic Trials Marathon. In that race I sustained an Achilles
tendon injury that would preclude me from the high running mileage required for
the marathon. In 2002 after two
years of treatment and many attempted comebacks I changed my focus to duathlon. I became a professional duathlete after
only two races as an age group competitor."
