ORCA FIRST OUT OF THE WATER
There was a theme of "first out of the water" and "second overall" this weekend for our Orca athletes!
Mike Phillips from New Zealand achieved both of these at Challenge Camsur in the Philippines - leading the pack out of the water in his brand new RS1 Swimskin with a great swim, then he never really looked back - achieving a great 2nd place overall in the blistering heat.
Brit Susie Cheetham obviously appreciated the fast, flat course at the brand new Ironman 70.3 Staffordshire as she had yet another great result with second place overall. She used the race to test out the soon to be released female version of the RS1 Dream Kona Aero Race Suit and was pleased to find it super comfortable for the run. Two more Brits were in action for the Baku 2015 European Games with Heather Sellars coming a credible 15th and Philip Graves stoked to be part of the British team that brought home the gold in the mens.
In Spain Orca ambassador Peru Alfaro was also 1st out of the water in his Orca Alpha wetsuit and had a great race at the Zarauzko Triathlon in the Basque Country, which consisted of a 2.9km swim, 81km bike and 20km run. Peru ended up 4th overall.
