WEEKEND RACING RE-CAP!
All around the Northern Hemisphere we had Orca athletes out racing and achieving great results this weekend!! Was great to see Chris McCormack (Macca) getting out there again at the Tri Rock Philadelphia Triathlon in the US – taking out the win and showing us all he’s still got what it takes!
Meanwhile across the waters at the IM 70.3 Luxembourg it was great to see our latest Orca athlete Susie Hignett having a great day out coming 2nd place overall after a stellar run brought her up to finish just 23secs behind first place!!
Also at IM 70.3 Luxembourg was Orca athlete Albert Moreno who continued his great season with a 6th place in a very competitive field with a time of 3:57:48.
And last, but definitely not least we had Matt Sharp and Dani Molina competing at the ETU Kitzbuhel European Tri Champs. Dani Molina continued his stellar form with a 2nd place in what was a fast-paced race in the Paratriathlete category! While Matt Sharp had his best race of the season so far on the ITU circuit, showing he can pull it out of the bag when the results are needed! As usual the times were super fast and Matt performed superbly to finish 10th in a time of 1:55:48 – with the winning time being 1:54:08 it is obvious how closely matched all these guys are in these top 10 spots. Congratulations Matt!!
