In what is rare “triathlon celebrity” news, Craig Walton proposed to Emma Snowill on her 27th Birthday. IF he was still racing the race for fastest couple would be between these two and Greg and Laura Bennett. Press Release below from Craig:
“15th June 2008 On the occasion of Emmas 27th Birthday, Craig Walton & Emma Snowsill have the greatest pleasure in announcing their engagement to be married.
They have been together since 2003 as elite international triathletes and real life partners.
Since Craig’s recent retirement from competition, they are now both concentrating on Emmas Beijing preparation. They depart for the United States tomorrow, where Emma will compete in Iowa & Minnesota as lead up events before going into final Olympic shutdown.
No plans have been announced as yet for the happy couple’s wedding date.”
