IM WA: The Bag Search

One last thing before the race report.
As we submitted our T1 and T2 bags, they made us take out everything and they searched them. We were (rightfully) asked if we had the main things, like our race numbers, shoes, bike helmet, etc.
But then they asked us if we had contraband substances. One of my buddies Keish was held up because he had some ibuprofen in his bag. They had to call an official to ask what that was and make sure it wasn’t illegal! Duh! It’s Advil, mate!
Well maybe people in Australia do cocaine or smoke a joint while racing. Guess they need to make sure we don’t do that.
