Argo Re fun series and Saturday swim

A reminder that the Argo Re Summer Series of super sprint triathlons has started on Thursday evenings at Clearwater. For more details go to the Argo Re FAQ section of the BTA website by following the link on this site to the BTA website. It’s for all abilities !! EMail to get on the mailing list for regular updates.

There will be a swim ( 750 meters or 1600 meters ) at 4PM on Saturday from Harrington Sound School Dock. A great way to get ready and relaxed for May 24th. This swim is not an official event so you swim at your own risk. We have had a good turnout.


Spain’s Javier Gomez made it three Triathlon World Cup Series wins in a row in a thrilling sprint finish with his young compatriot Mario Mola with South Africa’s Murray making the podium for the first time as he finished third. British brothers Alastair and Jonathan Brownleee were surprisingly unable to hold the fast run pace and finished 4th and 5th.

The US Gwen Jorgensen showed that if she gets off the bike with or near the leaders she can simply outrun her opponents as she won the female title.
