We just got word from Tony G who is in Italy with the Lithuanian rowing team at the World Rowing Championships and he gets to WPT Malta tomorrow for day 1b. Lithuania just won gold in Varese live on Eurosport and is the new Tony G project following basketball.
On Saturday, the official US swimming team and Lithuanian Olympic gold medallist Ruta Meilutyte both made comments about the upcoming triathlon at WPT Malta between Tony and Phil Hellmuth, which is sponsored by WPTPoker.com. Word is spreading way beyond poker circles. Ruta has spent time with Nordas at Tony Resort as the picture shows.
The terms of the triathlon are yet to be completely hammered out and Phil and Tony will meet tomorrow to nail this down. Which will give you time to raid his house! In the meantime, Tony sent the following message:

Mate, we are arriving for WPT Malta on Monday 1.30pm please have a band and limo waiting for us we need to be taken care of like the royals that we bloody are anyway (compared to Hellmuth anyway).
The triathlon needs to be this, we should even make it four events:
1km open sea water swim (boat drops us in the ocean and we fight for survival and get back)
100 free point shots
25km bike ride
Each minute shot needs to have some kind of value say 10 pts. The betting is going to be huge. We need some adjudicators, I suggest Mad Marvin and Vanessa (Selbst) – talk to the brat.
