Tom Francis wins Contact Trophy

13 03 2010

Twenty year old “local”, Tom Francis has this morning won the final round of the Tri NZ national series.

Getting out of the 1500m swim in around 35th place, Tom carved through the field on the 40km bike to be in 5th place starting the 10km run. An awesome final run dealt to the rest of the field. Great result Tom.


Racing in the elite under 19 race (drafting) Jono Lee has finished 14th in Wellington today, In the top 20 out of the water, Jono had to chase hard to catch the leaders and eventually was 10th going into the 5km run. In the end, he was 1min 40 down on the winner.

The field was stacked with the best young talent in NZ, as well as 15 triathletes from the Australian Institute of Sport.

Full results are here.
