Ironman 70.3 Cozumel, Mexico:
Yesterday marked a series of truly inspirational results for the trisutto.com squad. Their efforts in Cozumel were made all the more worthy when one considers they arrived on Thursday to 33 degrees Centigrade and 90% humidity after 3-months of training in St. Moritz where we had just the one day of weather over 21 degrees.
However, like all Sutto warriors they dug deep in trying conditions. Todd Skipworth showed he is back to his best after his trials and tribulations over the last two seasons; leading from the swim, hammering on the bike and then controlling the run to post another impressive victory over the Ironman 70.3 Distance.
Brooke Brown is having the best year of her triathlon career and continues to build, finishing in a well deserved fourth, and Ruth Nivon made the switch to long course and produced a super run to finish in the top 5. We are also really proud of Andres Castillo, who went out there and gave it his all for himself, his family, his team, and the 120 kids of the Tres Hermanos foundation Swim, Bike and Run program. He finished 7th with a magnificent 4-hours of courage. Really proud of the TriCozumel team.
2014 Burgas ETU Triathlon Balkan Championships:
Meanwhile at the Burgas ETU Triathlon Balkan Championships long-time squad member Dan McIntosh put in an extremely impressive performance to take a podium finish and his first Olympic points on his own road to Rio journey. Also a really sharp run split from the big fella. Well done, Dan.
International Greifenslauf Half Marathon:
Finally, in Switzerland Nicola Spirig continues to display her impressive running form by taking second at the International Greifenslauf half marathon championships with a poised 1 hour 15 split before flying into Cozumel. She’s shown she can match it with some of Europe’s best runners in what surely must be ominous signs for the girls on the ITU circuit.
Great job team,
