Michael Murphy and Brooke Langereis win Callala Beach Pro Tour Triathlon

After being out with serious injury for around two years Michael Murphy is back winning and enjoying triathlons again. Murphy suffered a serious shoulder injury after a crash that required bone graft and then his troubles were compounded by a foot injury which added to his woes. He is back racing though and is enjoying some early success under the coaching of Mark Newton.

Michael Murphy Callala Beach Dec 2011

At Callala Beach this weekend Murphy raced side by side with training partner Sam Douglas but was able to make an early break on the 5km run and hold Douglas off by 34 seconds to take the win. Murphy and Douglas came out of the swim together and managed to put just under a minute on the rest of the field on the bike. Douglas did have a faster finishing Nuru Somi behind him but had enough of a gap to finish second. Somi ran the fastest 5km of the race in 15:27. Coming out of the water just over 10 seconds behind Murphy and Douglas meant that Somi missed riding with the two stronger guys. If he had been able to stay with them in the water it could have been a different story.

Brooke Langereis

Brooke Langereis had the race to herself after coming out of the water well 30 seconds ahead of the next female and then further improving her position on the bike and run to finish 3:24 ahead of second placed Tarni Cunningham. Langereis has picked up some speed on the bike and run since last season and is looking good. She is a strong swimmer and with the added bike/run speed looks like she will have a good season.

In the club distance race at Callala Ben Bell and Christelle Van Niekerk took out the top spots. Ben Bell had to come from behind on the run to take the win after Tom Norris put over 3 minutes on him on the bike. Bell’s run time of 25:28 for the 8kms was blistering and four minutes faster than than Norris.

Christelle Van Niekerk dominated from the start. It is great to see Van Niekerk back racing and enjoying herself. After having a stint on a pro license in 2010 Van Niekerk struggled with juggling a professional career and training to compete with the full and part time pros. After taking some time off then getting in to mountain biking and completing a 700km ultra mountain bike race in South Africa this year, Van Niekerk is back and racing as well as she ever has.
