A great day out yesterday with 4 individuals competing, Jason Sing, Ivan Poznik, Leigh G and Yasmin G, along with our first official ‘Videopro Team’, made up of Shane Leaney, Ian Wright and Scott Govenlock.
Jason Sing came 33rd in his category in a time of 1:16:11 with a super speedy run leg which saw him overtake Leigh who was leading Jason until the last few km’s. Leigh finished 37th in a time of 1:16:52.
Ivan finished 47th in his category in a time of 1:24:19, a little slower than his best, which might be related to the early Christmas celebrations of late.
In the shorter ‘Enticer’ event, Yas finished 3rd in a personal best time of 38:26, a massive 6 minutes faster than her time in the same race last year. Had it not been for the massive stack at the end of the cycle transition, Yas might have finished 1st or 2nd – oh well, there is always next time.
Shane, Ian and Scott finished 13th in the teams category, which had 14 entries overall – well done on not coming last place guys! Individually they performed well with Ian finishing the 750m swim in 11th position, Shane finishing the 20km cycle in 13th position and Scott finishing the 5km run in 11th position. The final team time was 1:28:09! This was a training event for the team who are entered in the Mooloolaba Triathlon in March, which is double the distance.
It is great to see so many people involved in the Gatorade Series Triathlon’s. If you’re interested yourself, check out the USM events website or chat to one of the team members above.
