London Triathlon – Event Summary

London Triathlon 2011

The swim start

On Sunday 31st July Dan Lewi, Dan How and Adham Khalek took on the London Triathlon for THE CATS FOUNDATION!

The day began with all three making excuses as to why they won’t be finishing the triathlon – ranging from too little training to too much partying in the months leading up to the event. Having set a rather conservative target time of 3 hours 30 minutes everyone set off in the apparently EU approved dark and murky water of the Royal Victoria Dock in East London.

With a quicker than expected 1.5 km swim time by everyone followed by a a fast 40km ride on the bike all three were on target to smash the expected finish time. The 10km run was run in four loops which meant the crowds were always around to cheer everyone on. The picture shows the boys post event with their medals and t-shirts with their final results below the image.

The final finish times were much quicker then everyone thought with Adham going under three hours and both Dan’s finishing just over this mark – the final results are below.

Dan Lewi – 03:02:23
