Brendan Sexton and Michelle Wu win Nepean Triathlon – Results

By Karl Hayes

Nepean_Triathlon_Michelle_Wu_and_Brendan_SextonBrendan Sexton over came a swim deficit to win the 2010 Nepean Triathlon. Sexton also went on to win the Glenmore Park Plumbing & Drainage Super Sprint to make it a very profitable morning.

Pete Jacobs received a stop / start penalty on the bike after getting penalised for going around the wrong side of a cone on a corner. Jacobs was fuming after being the only one of the two lead guys to get penalised. 

The men’s race had the potential to be a three way sprint for the line until Mitch Robins copped a three minute penalty for drafting.

Michelle Wu continued her recent winning form (1st at Taiwan 70.3) and won the women’s race from behind. She ran down Lisa Marangon who lead off the bike. Melissa Rollison, recent winner of the Gold Coast Half Ironman, was charging through the leaders but ended up losing her run legs towards the end and Wu was able to hold her off. Michelle Wu also won the handicap event after holding out Brendan Sexton to cross the line just ahead. Watching Rollison run is quite spectacular. She has a longish stride and looks like she is sprinting the whole way.

Charlotte McShane was amongst the leaders at the start of the run but ended up collapsing and having to be taken to hospital. She looked okay as she was placed in the ambulance. It was an incredibly hot day and many people struggled on the run.
