Ocean lake (Leybourne) sprint triathlon 19-Aug-2017

As it turned out, we had four 7oaks tri men to represent the club for the 4th round of the South East club competition at Leybourne. The conditions were dry and warm but windy up on the exposed part of the cycle course across a new river Medway bridge (Peter's bridge). Olly, Ben and Rob returned from holidays the day before the event and Olly's carb loading with pork knuckles and German beer obviously worked as he set off with a fast swim! Even Ben's impressive 19 minute run wasn't quite enough to catch Olly before the line.

It was a competitive field of 100 athletes and Tri Surrey, Medway tri and OLT are taking the club competition seriously this year! However I think our team represented the club well and will post the standings in the club competition when I receive them.
