Among the ladies, the top three finishers were Laura Hope, Lea Osbourne and Jessie Marshall, in that order. Laura was in a hurry to finish so that she could shower, change and then cheer for her dad, David, at the finish (the days when Dave would wait for Laura at the end are long gone). Lea lives in Switzerland these days, but is a regular return visitor. Rumours that she comes back mainly to compete for podium places in this race are exaggerations. Probably. Jessie is a capable young athlete who (like her brother Tommy) could excel in triathlon if she decides to pursue it. (Perhaps they’ll get mum Julie to take part next week?)
An honourable mention goes to Liana Medeiros, who improved by over two minutes (ably supported by mum Joanne).
A big thank you this week to Donna Pilgrim (our bike marshal), Ian Pilgrim (for help with set up, registration and timing) and Charlie Griffiths (for collecting the swim buoy).
