Under the hot blazing Sun, Team Sonic suffered from the heat, performed the best and reached the finish line in Sprint Triathlon last Sunday.
Our one and only male junior Leung Wai Chun secured a position on the podium placed third in 1:25:21.
Twinson Wong pulled away on the bike and secured top 3 in his 20-24 age-group, Andrew Loong returned to the sports and finished strongly with 2nd runners up, with a time of 1:21:59. Flight engineer Albert Chan and Dr. Christopher Tong defended top 3 and top 4 in the most competitive age-group 35-39 with a respectable time of 1:22:45 for Albert and 1:23:05 for Chris. Our cycling coach Jeremy Leung did the first 'tri' for a short distance race, he lost 2mins in the water but the time was fully recovered by his powerful bike and run split, created enough room to win the super-sprint male open in 40:02. The most impressive competition was in 25-29 age-group, our head coach Kenneth exited water first and ahead of Ivan Yeung for 1:06, Ivan's hill training paid off on the bike split, narrowed the gap by just 11secs when they hit the ground. The pressure was on Kenneth, the real battle on the run determined the champion went to Kenneth with a time of 1:20:08 ahead of Ivan in 47secs in the end.
On the girls division, Gigi Wong showed up prepare, broke her record and back home with her first 1st runners up title in triathlon race. Cheung Tik Ka also be the only girl in female junior division awarded as 2nd runners up.
Lastly, congratulation to all newbie who made the first step in the sports of triathlon. May our good result extends in the HK ITU in October.
