Sharks a concern for triathletes in Sydney Harbor
SYDNEY (AP) -- Boats carrying shark-repelling devices will accompany swimmers during the opening leg of the World Championship Series triathlon event on Sunday.
Organizers said Saturday the devices have been fitted to ease any fears of competitors before they dive into Sydney Harbour for the 0.93-mile swim. That segment will be followed by a 24.86-mile cycle and 6.21-mile run.
