Mirinda Carfrae (AUS)
Men: Sentimental favorite for the men’s race is my Timmy boy. Others to watch are Jan Frodeno, Bevan Docherty and never count out Crowie.
Women: No one will touch Mel Hauschildt in the form she is in. Others to watch are Annabel Luxford, Lisa Norden if she races [Norden is reported to have a foot injury] and Svenja Bazlen. Now that I think of it there are loads of girls who could take a podium spot–it’s too hard to pick. I’m looking forward to seeing it all shake out.
