Top Triathletes Triumphant at National Aquathlon Championships

#GALWAY BAY NEWS - Elite triathlete Bryan Keane and international runner Lizzie Lee were the big winners at the National Aquathlon Championships in Galway Bay last weekend.

Competitors fought it out over a course that included a 2km swim and a 10km run, differing from the traditional triathlon in the omission of a cycling stage.

As reports, Keane was first out of the water with an impressive time of 26 minutes 4 seconds - and he maintained his domination over the field in the running portion, covering the distace in just 33 minutes 13 seconds.

Meanwhile, in the women's race, Lizzie Lee was third out of the water but her extensive running experience helped her pull ahead of the pack on foot, crossing the finish line with a lead of nearly 2 1/2 minutes.

A selection of images of the race from photographer Martin Jancek are available HERE.
