Kona may be over, but the racing sure isn't!
There were many great performances over the weekend including two overall wins!
First up was Jeanni Seymore at Austin 70.3. Due to heavy fog in the morning, the swim was first delayed by two hours and eventually canceled, turning the event into a time trial start, bike-run. A strong bike leg positioning her within the top three and once on the run, no one could match her pace. Jeanni won with a 10 minute margin of victory! This marks her first win of the season and defends her 2015 Austin 70.3 title.
Sam Long and Ellen Hart also took to the start line in Austin. Sam finished 7th behind some of the greats in the sport, while Ellen grabbed 1st in her age group.
Sam Mazer is your 2016 Ironman Los Cabos female champion! With over 20 minutes to spare, Sam crossed the finish line first in a time of 10:58:27 to claim the title. Needless to say, this qualifies her for Kona next year.
Also in Los Cabos for the weekend, Justin Metzler finished 9th in the 70.3 distance race.
After three days of unique and fast racing in the Bahamas, Leon Griffin found himself in 6th place at the ultra competitive, Island House Triathlon. The event hosted 40 of some of the worlds best triathletes from multiple distance specialties. Times were cumulative from all the days events which included individual time trails, 5k runs, and finally a sprint triathlon to close out the finals.
