Nuru Somi backs up from Saturday’ Pro Tour win to win Sunday’s triwagga Olympic Distance Triathlon
Canberra’s Nuru Somi has shown his class this weekend in Wagga Wagga after taking out both the Pro Tour and Sunday’s Olympic distance triathlon. Last year Wagga Wagga included a round of the Ultimate Triathlon series but it was decided by Elite Energy to focus solely on the triseries and keep the distances inline with the brand.
500 competitors raced over the weekend making this event a success after last years Ultimate Triathlon saw poor weather conditions possibly play on the competitors minds. For a regional center a sporting festival like this is important for the economy and for the sporting public.
In the general sprint triathlon Jared Kahlefeldt (brother of Brad) took out the overall title with Michelle Morwood winning the women’s title.
On Sunday in the main race Somi swum and rode with Lindsay Wall before running away with the win.
