Friday Night Aquathlon Series 2008/2009 - Race 11 - March 20th

The smallest field since the new year race were greeted with overcast conditions. We had 17 competitors including 13 members. Everyone except El Presidente was within 50 seconds of their series PB with 5 people beating their series best, the best of them Trev by an impressive 1:06.

Wally was once again Mr All-Around with the second fastest swim and second fastest run to take the overall victory. Martin was 23 seconds back and had the fastest run split of the day while Chris W was once again the fastest in the water by a mile (60 seconds). Michelle had the third fastest swim split and hung on to be the first female home, holding off a very fast finishing Lisa by just 3 seconds. Well done everyone!

Series Points: Of the 13 members we had Gavin racing for the first time as a member so he picked up 5 points and a handicap time, everyone else had handicaps to beat. For the second round in a row the biggest improver was Michelle who beat her previous best by 33 seconds and her handicap by just over 1 minute, representing a 3.4% improvement on her handicap. Karen was the other big improving member beating her series PB by 38 seconds and her handicap by 47 seconds, earning her the 28 points. Adrian and Michael were the others to beat their handicap time.

Elicia's absence saw her drop from the top to third with Nev doing likewise after failing to improve on his Top 8 scores. Wally (161) regained the lead with Cath just 3 points back. Tony holds down fifth with 154 points with Lisa (152), Michael & Adrian (both 151) close behind.

The Top 8 are separated by just 10 points going into the final round and with double points on the line this race is wide open!

Full points standings and list of current handicap times is here.

Well done to everyone including Annabelle and Jake who had completed the Kids Aquathlon today and as usual a big thanks to all the volunteers. Here are the full results.
