Super-Sprint series comes to a close for triathletes


The Bedford Super-Sprint series came to a close for Leighton’s triathletes with a highly attended event at the Robinson pool.

Over 200 athletes queued to start the 400m swim in the pool, emerged into the transition area for their 24k cycle, before a quick 5k run.

Alex Fry was once again the top athlete for Leighton. He is an excellent swimmer, so was one of the later starters.

His well planned and executed race was capped with a top five finish in a time of 1.04.18.

Rob Harrison finished in 18th place overall with a superb time of 1.12.04.

Chris Leech finished in 25th place in 1.14.12. His cycle of 42.11 after a steady swim put him back into contention in his own race category followed by an excellent run gave him first place in the male 55-59.

Nick Taylor-Komar was taking part in his first ever triathlon. Initially nervous about the swim, he finished relieved, to then storm the bike route and the run to finish in 47th in 1.16.12.

The first Leighton woman back was Carey Vigor in a fine time of 1.33.27 finishing in 186th place. Beth Goodlad was not far behind in 1.35.23 and the clubs veteran international Jo Parker returning from injury in 1.40.22.
