Who will be the fastest Minnesotan at the Ironman World Championships this weekend? There are a number of great triathletes (i.e. Dan Arlandson) that could vie for this distinction, but I am going to make a bold prediction that Alex Hooke (photo L) will be that person. Alex, a biomechanical engineer at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, is super fast and appears to have put in the training to have an outstanding day at Kona. He will also have a great support crew with him, including his wife and about every other Hooke (see below) in Minnesota.
