Triathlon Report form 9th November 2014

by Alan Kaplan

It was a beautiful spring morning for this month’s event.

Twelve adults and 10 children participated in the race across all distances.

Michael Rifkin who led from start to finish after a brilliant swim of 10 minutes won the adult race. Craig Pager tried to play catch-up and despite a fantastic run of just over 18 minutes for the 5km finished second just under a minute behind.

Alan Rubinstein, Lawrence Marshbaum (first time) and ever improving Daniel Butt took out next 3 places. Rabbi Gad Krebs could have been a contender but unfortunately punctured with 1 lap of ride to go.

Welcome back to Alan Greenstein after injury and Laura Madeisky who did her first effort at Maccabi.

Zoe Pager closely followed by Taya Simmons and Montana Pager won the short kids distance.

Noah Lewis won the middle distance followed home by Jesse Lewis and Benji Greenstein.

Leo Rubinstein won the long kids distance in a credible time of 51 minutes. Paul Stone and Zane Simmons followed him home.

Special mention goes to Dena Rubinstein who managed to do the full long kids distance in very good time.

The next event is the swim and run biathlon from Redleaf Pool on 7th December
