Weekend round-up: Elmore second at Ironman 70.3 Augusta

Track runner-turned-triathlete Malindi Elmore has been putting together a strong resume of results this season and added a podium finish (second) and third overall placing in Georgia at Ironman 70.3 Augusta yesterday. Elmore clocked 4:20:06 for the half distance, breaking down to 26:02 for the swim, 2:27:10 for the bike and 1:22:29 for the run. Almost six minutes back from the leader heading into T1, it was a hard-earned and impressive effort to second place in the women-only pro field.

Denmark’s Helle Frederiksen took the win in 4:10:45 and South Africa’s Jeanni Seymour came in third just seconds back from Elmore. Canada’s Stephanie Roy, a rookie pro from Quebec, placed sixth and in her first race back after a long season of recovery from a broken foot, Melanie McQuaid took 14th.

Jamnicky top Canadian at Salinas World Cup

Dominika Jamnicky ran her way to a top 10 finish (ninth) at ITU Salinas World Cup in Ecuador as the first canuck to cross the line in the women’s race filled with young rising Canadian talent. Jamnicky held a solid place throughout the entire race and headed out of T2 in a lead pack of nine, but wasn’t able to hold on to top runners who made a breakaway — namely Summer Cook and Kirsten Kasper (USA) — to take a podium spot.

Jamnicky clocked 1:00:32 for the sprint distance race. Emy Legault was the next Canadian in 17th, followed by Elisabeth Boutin in 18th and Adreanne Brière-Dulude in 21st.

No Canadian men started the race.
