Had a good #race today finishing 3rd @nyctriathlon behind @jasonwesttri and @camdyetri . Raced alone in second for a long time until Jason caught me with 2km to go. Congrats on great races. Great race @loeweng finishing 8th and @kmarchant91 on 3rd! #raceday #olytri #podium #champagneshowers
New York City Triathlon always draws an impressive pro field thanks to its world-class venue, strong prize purse and the fact that it is one of few Olympic non-drafting events in the North America. Both Laundry and Marchant have demonstrated their skill at this event in the past, both achieving notable results at the St. Anthony’s Triathlon in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Laundry finished just over a minute behind winner Cameron Dye, a regular contender in Olympic non-drafting events. He clocked 12:11 for the swim, 57:42 for the bike and 32:49 for the run.
Marchant surprised herself with a career-best sub-two hour finish, breaking down as 12:19 for the swim, 1:05:32 for the bike and 36:11 for the swim. Women’s winner Lauren Goss, also a regular contender in these types of races, finished in 1:56:54.
