“Kings Land” Triatlon 2013

It wasn’t any difference between the last two competitions as the weather conditions were almost the same.
“Kings Land” Triatlon took place in Oradea, Romania. Gaining experience from the previous triathlon, I focused more on the cycling part of the competition as it represented about 50% of the final time.

Swimming (1000 m)

I swam in the local lake without the neoprene suit as the water had 18 degrees Celsius. Swimming in fresh water represented an even harder challenge for me, therefore I finished in 21 minutes.

Cycling (28 km)

This race was shorter than usual, but had a 250 m level difference. I rode with an average of 19 km/h.

Running (6 km)

I had 6 one kilometer laps and I was able to sprint in the last lap up to 16 km/h during the final kilometer. I finished in 36 minutes.

My final time of 2:39 placed me on the 3rd position. I gained 20 points, having a total score of 46 points until now. In addition to this, I took part at the same time, in a relay race with my dad (@ cycling) and with a friend (@ running). That was possible wearing two chips for the two different categories: the individual and the relay race. When I finished swimming, I gave the relay chip to my dad and I went on to cycling. They had a total time of 2:38, thus finishing on the second position.

Completing this two stages allowed me to stay on the podium.
