Les Trois Sports

I don´t know about you but the image of a Professor that I have in my mind is of someone who sits for hours reading in a room with his pipe and a chimney. And if he makes a move, is because he is going for a walk with his dog.

I know that Leadership Prof. Juan Carlos Pastor reads a lot. However, instead of a walk he trains really hard cycling, swimming and running. Thriathon is his passion.

Triathlon is considered by some to have its beginnings in 1920s France. According to triathlon historian and author Scott Tinley, the origin of triathlon is attributed to a race during the 1920s–1930s that was called variously “Les trois sports”, “La Course des Débrouillards”, and “La course des Touche à Tout.” This race is held every year in France near Joinville-le-Pont, in Meulan and Poissy.

In this video Prof. Pastor draws very interesting lessons from the 3 sports he practices. Leadership is also a matter of hard training he seems be saying all the time.
