Gack! TriathAlon drives me nuts! People should at least have to be able to spell TRIATHLON as a requirement for starting the swim leg, as well as pronounce it correctly with three syllables.

Yes, I cut slack to people for whom English is not their native language. And anyone in a hurry who doesn't proofread may be permitted one or two inadvertent typing errors per day. And "weakened" may be an appropriate substitute for "weekend", on occasion. Otherwise there are no excuses.
