Husband and wife Stuart and Lea Osborne completed the Uster Triathlon on the 27th August near Zurich Switzerland producing solid results.
On a warm, humid and mainly overcast day Lea finished 2nd in the sprint distance triathlon in the 55 to 64 age group in 1:23:33 with a 16:58 swim 36:14 cycle 24:50 run.
Stuart, also competing in the 55-64 age group, completed the olympic distance in 2:43:22 for 23rd in the age group. The swim was long and required the athletes to exit the water and run across a car park between laps. Stuart would have been 3rd in the 60-64 age group if 5 year increments had been used. Stuart’s splits were 39:31 , 1:10:45 and 48:39.
Both Lea and Stuart will be on the start line for Bermuda in about 10 days time at the ITU Age Group World Championships in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
