2008 St. Anthony’s Triathlon Results – Matt Reed and Sarah Haskins

Well here we go, Matt Reed is putting his stamp on the American spring triathlon season. Not only did he win a Beijing Olympic slot, but he just beat out a stellar field down in St. Petersburg at the 2008 St. Anthony’s Triathlon. The women’s side was taken by Sarah Haskins, which is a great result for this speedy swimmer who was first out of the water and posted the fastest run.
I can’t remember where David Thompson came in last year but I remember it being 7th or 8th – well at this year’s he was 9th, but his run was 5th fastest which is great since the biking will come around once we start having decent weather in this frozen state called Minnesota. One surprise for me was seeing Marcus Ornellas from Brazil come in 8th – I guess I just do not know much about him but he ran a very balanced race. And Faris Al Sultan (my pick to win since why not!)? Well he finished a respectable 15th versus all the short distance guys.

On the amateur side, Adam Webber from Lebanon, PA took it in 1:55:36, while Brooke Davison from Boulder, CO won the elite female crown in 2:04:56. Bree Wee, one of the fastest amateurs of the last few years, got a nice top 10 result in the pro ranks today. Bree is the gal that in her third year of racing broke Kate Major’s overall amateur Ironman record (thereby also setting the 25-29 age group record) at the 2007 Ironman Hawaii – her time was a blistering 9:47.

    Where are the age group results?
    What percentage of the participants are pro’s vs age groupers?
    In almost all tri publications they only list the Pro and overall age group winners, what about the age group results? The vast majority of your readers are age group participants.
