Nick McElwee oversees Tri Yas, which puts on a triathlon on the infamous Yas Marina Circuit Formula 1 course in Abu Dhabi. The event has grown from 600 participants to 1300 in the span of four years.

Lesley Paterson was the only girl playing rugby with the boys when she was growing up in Scotland.
