Michael left us yesterday. He will be fondly remembered as a valued member of triathlon team, Crazy2Tri; an Ironman triathlon finisher; and a very good person. Instead of asking about how he left us, we could ask: How did he live his life? He lived a very rich life, enriched with experiences, strong and sustained relationships, and a plethora of achievements and accomplishments. In other words, Michael lived a successful life. We honour you today, Michael!
I was proud to race, side-by-side, with Michael 'Macca' in Ironman Malaysia 2007 - every step a tough competitor and determined athlete in life. Every ounce a Gentleman! You will be missed, my Friend.
