Warriner takes win at New Orleans 70.3

Sam Warriner has continued her success at the 70.3 distance, winning the New Orleans 70.3 race on Sunday. Sam left T2 in 5th position, and pulled out a great half-marathon of 1.21.35 in the heat to run her way past Dede Griesbauer and Linsey Corbin to take the lead from TBB athlete Amy Marsh.

In the mens race Andy Potts had an impressive swim that gave him over a minute and a half lead heading onto the bike, followed by Graham O'Grady in his first attempt at this distance. Terenzo Bozzone managed to catch Potts on the bike, but it was short lived with Potts quickly regaining the lead and running a 1.12.40 to secure the win comfortably. We were pretty stoked to see Graham O'Grady hold on for 7th - not a bad start at long distance racing!
