Club Champion Craig Pager

Report for 2015 Club Championships held 19th April 2015

by Alan Kaplan

Despite prediction of rain, which came to Sydney later, the weather for Sundays race was sunny and windy.

There were 2 adult races. Craig Pager won the triathlon champs over Olympic distance. After exiting the swim neck and neck with Alan Kaplan, Craig pulled away on the windy bike leg only to fall back by 3 minutes at the start of run due to 2 stoppages for punctures. A great run of less than 38 minutes for 10km saw Craig overtake Alan and win by 2 minutes from Alan Kaplan. Mark Haber was third followed by a great performance from the evergreen Mike Besser.

In her first triathlon over the distance Suzie Cohen had an excellent race to win the womens' division.

In the sprint distance it was welcome back to one of our former greats Roy Cohen who took out the event followed by Gad Krebs and ever improving Daniel Butt.

In the juniors events the short race was won by Marla Favey followed by Zoe Pager

Zane Simmons followed by Sabrina Zulman won the longer distance.

Hope to see more turn up for Duathlon series starting 31st May.
