Wall Lake Triathlon Results
I had the opportunity to do the public address for this years Wall Lake Triathlon. It’s an event that Sanford Wellness puts on. Evey year they make little improvements and the event keeps getting better and better.
Early Saturday morning it looked like we might get rained out, or at least rained on. As usual, the weather cleared off and it turned out to be a beautiful morning for the event.
All Sports Central was on hand again for the event. If you would like to see all the results they have them posted.
The overall event winner was 31 year old Michael Martin from Sioux Falls. But a couple of finishes that also caught my eye were Harold Bich of Sioux Falls. Harold finished 87th overall but at 74 years of age, I say congratulations!
The athlete that most everyone was talking about was 15 year old Katie Patrick of Sioux Falls. I was talking with Kathy Grady, one of the Sanford organizers, (who is an elite athlete herself) and she said that Katie is an elite athlete for her age in Triathlon events. If you take a look at her time, she was within one minute of actually winning the event She is a powerful swimmer and obviously an awesome runner and biker!
Congratulations to all who put the shoes on for the event. And shout out to the Sanford organizers. Awesome event once again. The Wall Lake Triathlon!
