Visiting professional triathlete Adsy Gordon of Australia will add interest to tomorrow’s Tokio Millenium Re Triathlon as he lines up in a strong field of local athletes. Adsy has been in Bermuda conducting his 2nd annual triathlon camp and has been putting a group of athletes, senior and juniors, through their paces this week, partly in preparation for this popular race.
As recently as 28th August Adsy finished 7th overall in the Ballina Triathlon in Australia in 59 min 19 secs and he will he hard to beat on Sunday. Leading the local men’s challenge will be Phil Mace, the first Bermudian finisher at the ITU World Cup amateur race and the 2018 National Standard Distance Triathlon Champion, defending 2017 TMR winner Matt Thompson, who has however been recovering from a leg fracture, Alan Potts, 2nd last year in this event by 30 seconds, and Geoff Smith, who will be hoping that his usually outstanding bike leg puts him in position for a podium spot. Others to watch will be Will Green and Alex Kronenburg.
Ashley Estwanik, although only recently recovering from an ankle operation, should still be a strong favorite to take overall female honours with Maddie Durkin and a resurgent Laura Norman likely to take the other podium positions.
