Belfast Titanic Triathlon 2016

📁 Results


Belfast Titanic was the focal race on the calendar this weekend and OTC formidable presence around the city. There were some great results in both the Sprint and Olympic races.
The Sprint distance race saw Ryan Sharkey take the top step of the podium in style with sister Emma taking the top female slot and impressive fourth overall. Frank wasn’t too far behind in superb 7th slot winning his age group comfortable. Other notable results in the sprint race saw Eamon Hill return to form with an Age-group win along with Chris McKeown and Ali McConnell topping their age categories.
The Olympic distance saw Pete take third overall for the second week and third race in a row.
There was some tightly fought battles between club members which should make for some great end of season showdowns. Great to see club members taking on the Olympic distance races for the first time and achieving fantastic results. Well done John, Fergal and Ricky (add result)
Special mention to Ciaran H who took the battle of the Ciaran’s this week, those who were at the post race party in cutters received the blow by blow account of how it was executed but that’s for another day.

Swim Belfast – Sunday 31st July 2016

The inaugural ‘Swim Belfast’ was held on Sunday and followed the same 1500 metres well worn by those that completed the Olympic distance at the Belfast Titanic Triathlon.

Of the 70 participants, about 15 chose to swim in their skins and were no doubt thankful for the beautiful day and warm water. The impressive winning time of 21:37 was completed by a skin so maybe the water was colder than we thought and swimming hard was a good way to warm up!

Jacqui D (33:52) and Siobhan S (25:56) opted for wetsuits and enjoyed the event for the views as much as anything else. They think this could be a new tourist attraction…you get just as wet on an open top bus!
