From bad to the worst…
First mention goes to Mitch Robins. In his first race back after quite some time sidelined by an unlucky injury Mitch has either forgotten how to wear a helmet properly or is just trying to show off his nicely styled fringe. We’re not sure what his left arm is doing but all in all, he looks like an idiot and wins nothing.
From what we can pick up Kephren went to the swim start with his sunglasses on which is a little awkward but won’t make you blush for too long, unless the Bundaberg news week is so desperate for story that it becomes headline local news. For the awkward story and a name that sounds like something to do with your kidneys, Kephren wins a pair of Budgy smugglers.
Good shot from Matt busting in on Ironman logo clad supporter relieving himself. This got an honourable mention for no other reason except that some creepy photographer had zoomed in on the portaloos hoping for an action toilet shot. Weird.
Matt has picked himself up a new pair of Zoot running shoes.
Hong Kong ITU race, Jesse Featonby leaves transition after forgetting to clip in his bike shoes. Full points for improvising and for being the only guys in ITU who can’t do 10 second transitions in their sleep. A pair of budgy smugglers coming your way Jesse.
4th Place- $100 SIS Gift Voucher
Dave Williamson submitted this pic of his first Irondistance swim experience coming out of the water after a couple of hearty chunders. Sure Dave, it’s not your best looking moment but then we noticed the earring in the top of the left ear and that sealed the deal. 4th place finish for Dave.
Ian Pamensky sent us this beauty. Ian, featured in the centre, is riding hard with his cap and goggles still on. Brilliant. Demoted from 1st place to 3rd because we can’t believe that this photo wasn’t purchased given Ian will probably never get a more entertaining triathlon photo.
2nd Place- $100 Budgy Smuggler Voucher
Peter Grant from Coffs Harbour in his comeback after a 12 year hiatus feeding in very good pastures. We love the smugglers coupled with a solid gatorade projectile vomit. Congrats Peter.
1st Place- Garmin Forerunner 10
Too good. Nothing else to add.
