This past Sunday, LETC was in Kelowna for the Canadian National Olympic Distance Triathlon Championships. We had an amazing team showing with 25 LETC / LETC friends and alumni in attendance! We even had a dedicated cheering section with Amy, Craig, Marie, the Kieffer family and many other friends and family! The race course was tough, the temperature brutally hot and the competition fierce with over 1300 athletes converged on the weekend of racing!
On the bike, Martina worked super hard in her pack and recorded the 4th fastest bike split! The two of them performed a clinic in T2 skills posting the fastest bike to run transitions and led the chase pack onto the run in 5th and 6th places. Rachel went on to finish 5th overall and 3rd Canadian, and Martina pushed harder than she ever had in a race to finish 11th overall and 8th Canadian!
Well done girls!
AGE GROUP RACE
What more can we say?
2008 World Champion and now 2008 Canadian F4044 Champion - our very own Stephanie Kieffer is unstoppable in 2008! And did we mention 3rd overall as well?
With over 20 participants in the race, LETC was solid across the board with four podium appearance and nine automatic qualifications (q) for the 2009 ITU Olympic Distance Worlds in Australia and probably many more to come now that we're on "the list"!
