ITU World Triathlon Series
1.) ITU World Triathlon Series
The global, pre-olympic qualifying series kicked off in Auckland, New Zealand this past weekend. As the first of an eight event series, Auckland boasted elite participants from all over the world. The sun was out and so were the spectators for this dynamic three sport event.
Chicago plays host to the series June 27-29th. Chicago locals should come enjoy the spectacle that the elite athletes provide. The race is centered around the historic and iconic, Buckingham Fountain in Grant Park.
New Zealand All Blacks Rugby
2.)The New Zealand All Blacks are coming to Chicago and it's a big deal.
When? November 1 2014
What? The All Blacks and their vicious Haka vs the US Eagles Rugby team
Where? Soldier Field. Where else?
Don’t be late to hop on this train. Tickets won’t last long and Rugby is an experience that Chicago soil can’t always offer.
Lorde at Lolla
3.)This 17 year old Kiwi bird is rooted in all things normal. An avid book reader and boy band hater, Lorde offers something that most teenyboppers never will: perspective and depth. Lorde grounds herself in Chicago this summer for the infamous festival, Lollapalooza and she’s sure to deliver a ‘royal’ performance. Hear a bit about this broad from the legend herself here.
