Ironman Switzerland & London Triathlon Races

Congratulations to Nigel Quaye who completed his first Ironman Event - Ironman Switzerland last weekend in a fantastic time of 10hrs 36m.  Other than having a very long T1 (over 7 minutes) for forgetting/ losing his sunglasses, everything else went really smoothly. He had a strong swim, then he managed to hold a steady pace throughout the bike leg. Nigel has always been a strong runner and felt comfortable starting the run section, completing his marathon in 3hrs 50m.

Joseph Ricciardi was also back in action, competing at the London Junior Elite Sprint event on 3rd August, where the Age Group is 17-19 yrs.  Joseph finished an excellent 11th in a time of 1:11:01

London also hosted it's Standard distance course, where Paul Swindale took 3rd place in the M45-49 category in 2:10:19 (68th overall from 4598) and Jon McGowan finished 10th in 2:15:10 (171st overall).  Mark Dietrich, now a London resident, finished 33rd in the M35-39 category in 2:12:32
