Michelle takes Silver at Tauranga Half

9 01 2010

Marlborough triathlete Michelle Gammie-Catterick had an excellent race today at the Port of Tauranga Half Ironman. With a time of 5.11.57, she takes home a silver medal in her age group (45-49) in the NZ Half Ironman Champs.

Finishing in the top 20 of all age groupers is a great effort given that this race attracts all the best triathletes in NZ.

The womens race was unsurprisingly won by Olympian Samantha Warriner, but 18 year old Michael Poole pulled off a surprise win in the men’s race.

Race report to follow.
