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.

His stories have been published in The New York Times, The Globe and Mail, International Herald Tribune and many other publications around the world.

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.

The author also is a triathlete. He has competed at all distances and so far has nine Ironmen races on his CV. He's a certified community coach in Canada and a member of the executive of the Squamish Titans multisport club.
