15 yr old Maia Austin placed 6th overall and 1st in her age group at the St. George Sprint Triathlon!
This continues Maia's Age-group winning streak and high overall placings from the Havasu and Rage Sprint Triathlons from March and April of this spring.
Shem Foster entered the St. George OLY Tri feeling under the weather but still raced super hard and placed 20th overall and 3rd in the Male OPEN division. Shem was coming off a solid St. George 70.3 race just 2 weeks earlier where he just missed the 5-hour mark on the incredibly challenging St. George 70.3 Course.
Claudia Sabedra raced the always hot and muggy Florida 70.3 and had a solid race despite overly warm water temps and hot conditions on the run course. She had a strong performance on the ride to build on for her next race, IM Arizona 2013.
Ryan Clift raced in the Elite-Open division at Got the Nerve Sprint Triathlon in Mt. Gretna, PA. The course features a very hilly bike with 1121 feet of climbing in a span of only 15.6 miles!
Ryan improved his time from last year by a whopping 7 minutes, and placed 7th overall in the Elite Class. His finish time of 1:14:07 was less than 3 minutes off the winning time of 1:11:15
Nice Work Ryan!
In addition, we had two of our favorite DH313 Swim Club members in action at the St. George Sprint Triathlon. Mike Abele and Eric Simonsen had strong performances on the day, crossing the finish line with a smile!
Well done this weekend everyone!
