On Saturday August 1st, Mooney’s Bay Park in Ottawa held Triathlon Ontario’s Provincial Draft-Legal Championships.
The juniors got the help of the U23 competitors who started the race together.
Danae had a good swim and was able to form with an U23 athlete and a few competitors on the bike to try to chase down about a 45 second lead ahead of her. The fast bike reduced the lead by half the time with Danae biking with the fastest pace of her race! On the run Danae was able to open a gap over the rest of the chase pack and finish 2nd overall in the Provincial Championship! What an accomplishment to carry forward into a couple more National competitions!
Emilie was smart benefiting from the draft of an U23 athlete exiting together through the swim, and pushing on the bike to the middle of the pack. As one of the youngest athletes in her age group, Emilie raced well to 7th place! Emilie has also been a competitor is the Provincial races so well that she is currently 3rd in this summers Provincial Junior rankings!
