another weekend swimming faster in blueseventy...

In yet another busy weekend of racing, blueseventy athletes again led the way out of the water over the weekend with Cam Dye, Graham O'Grady, Dustin McLarty and Ben Collins all leading the pack out of the swim leg in their respective events.

Ben Collins put in a solid performance to retain that lead through to the finish with a win at the San Francisco Triathlon.  Andrew McCartney (7th) and Kyle Leto (9th) where the other blueseventy athletes rounding out the top 10.

At The Lifetime Fitness Triathlon, the huge event again attracted many of the sports brightest stars.  But it was Cam Dye who dominated the swim, one of 5 blueseventy athletes finishing in the top 10 men, with Matt Chrabot claiming a podium spot with 2nd, Cam Dye 6th, David Thompson 7th, Greg Bennett 8th, and Andrew Starykowicz 9th.

At Ironman 70.3 Rhode Island it was young kiwi Graham O'Grady leading the way with an impressive swim.  New to the longer distance racing, O'Grady put in a solid effort on the bike but was unable to match the pace of the lead men in the run, eventually finishing 11th overall, but showing great promise for the future.

The race was won by fellow kiwi Terenzo Bozzone, with blueseventy athletes Tim Berkel and Paul Ambrose round out the podium in 2nd and 3rd.

The blueseventy girls also rocked up with some solid results with Caitlin Snow 2nd, (22 seconds down from winner Kate Major) and Sam Warriner 3rd.  Kim Loeffler narrowly missed getting 3rd, finishing just 14 seconds down from Warriner in 4th.  Carrie Lester (7th) and Annie Gervais (9th) also secured top 10 finishes.
