Top Three Positions Stay The Same In Tresco Triathlon

tresco triathlon 2012The same three athletes finished in the same positions as 2012 in yesterday’s Tresco Triathlon.

Graham Clegg won in 1 hour, 10 minutes and 4 seconds.

Graham knows how to handle a bike, as he’s been working as manager of the islands’ cycle hire. But the second-time winner, who entered for the first time last year, says he struggled a bit on the run. Graham says he hopes he can maintain his momentum for next year.

Mark Worledge finished second again, for the fourth time, while St Mary’s resident Andrew King finished in third.

Alison Douglas was first woman home in 1 hour, 19 minutes and 48 seconds and was 11th overall.

Selena Baxter was the second woman to finish and completed the circuit 9 minutes faster than last year.
