Prior to October’s Ford Ironman World Championship, Olympic gold medalist Simon Whitfield sat down with Bob Babbitt for an episode of Breakfast With Bob. Whitfield talks about his two Olympic medals, whether he’s considered making the jump up to Ironman and what he thinks about Chris McCormack’s return to ITU racing.

* Editor’s note: Since this interview, Whitfield took a major step forward towards representing Canada at the 2012 Olympic Summer Games, thanks to a discretionary selection made by Triathlon Canada.
