TT2A :: Tried and Conquered Yas Marina

We saw a great turnout today at Yas Marina, a fantastic venue for a triathlon here in the UAE. An open water swim in the marina, bike round the F1 track finished with a view of the iconic Yas Marina Hotel saw some awesome performances from the the team all round.

The TT2A Sprint Distance contingent took Open Male 1st Ian Le Pelley. Not too far behind Ian were Ed Hawkins – 2nd, Matt Warnock – 3rd and Neil Flanagan – 4th. It was no surprise to see our very own World Champion Deidre Casey 1st Open Female, and 5th overall – only 6 seconds after Mr Flanagan. Unreal Didge 🙂

 In the Olympic Distance we had a huge turn out with some respectable results. Guy Higgs leading the TT2A field with a brilliant 2:23:22 with Trudy Sturkenboom commanding the ladies TT2A field going sub 2h 30 smashing the bike and holding her run all the way 🙂
