This evening’s Argo Re super sprint took place in windy, hot and humid conditions. This made for somewhat slower than usual times.

Newcomer Julian Fletcher finished a strong first. Regular podium finisher Otis Ingham finished second, with Ben Lau in third. Cathie Oliveira was the leading lady, showing her kids that they’re not the only capable athletes in the family.

A big thank you to Janet Harrison for — yet again — coming down to act as safety marshal, this time even though daughter Rebecca was overseas instead of taking part. Thanks also to Ben Lau, who has successfully graduated from Swim Buoy Deployment 101, to Dawn Johnson for helping with sign-up, and to everyone else who helped.

Other notable stuff:

  • Morgan Hopkins was the first competitor to finish the event despite being attacked by a chicken (on the way out of the swim leg)
  • Ben Lau wore a wet suit. He says it was because he needs to practice ahead of a key triathlon. Some say he couldn’t cope with the frigid August Bermuda water
  •  Betsy the bike–consigned to gather dust by Jennie Lightbourne when she got hold of a cuter, younger model–made a comeback, being ridden by visitor Ben Watkinson
  • Ben W also made the news for doing valiantly despite the need for a GPS on both run legs.
  • Well done to Lucas–age not very much–who took place in his first triathlon less than two weeks after learning how to ride a bicycle.
