About the author:
Timothy Moore is a journalist. He has reported on global financial markets, companies, chief executives, central bankers and economists for more than two decades from Canada and Australia.
Tim spent more than 12 years at Bloomberg News as both a reporter and then an editor. He began his career at United Press International and has spent the last five years working for The Australian Financial Review in Sydney and now Canada.

Tim is a regular contributor to Toronto-based Triathlon Magazine Canada, focusing on profiles of age group and pro athletes. The idea for this book came from a story he wrote for San Diego-based Triathlete magazine's June 2008 issue about the then pending assault on Paula Newby-Fraser's 1994 record of 8:50:53. The record was smashed weeks after the story was published.
Sub Nine: History's Fastest Ironwomen
Timothy John Moore
Every generation is defined in part by the achievements of its athletes. Triathlon is one of the youngest and one of the fastest growing sports around the world. In the last four seasons in particular, professional women triathletes have been pacing each other to faster and faster finishing times. This book profiles the fastest iron-distance women professionals-ever. In all, 22 women have finished an iron-distance race in less than 9 hours. Make no mistake, these are the elite of the elites. This book contains snapshots into what drives these athletes.
