Sunday December 12th saw the second race of the Gatorade Triathlon Series 2010/2011 in Elwood, Victoria. Rough conditions in the bay weren’t enough to deter over 2,000 competitors.
Proving there is enormous talent out there in tri world, both the men’s and women’s Elite division winners made it a two for two double. Madeleine Oldfield beat Anna Coldham and Kate Murphy, while Brendan Sexton was too strong for newcomer Tim Clarke and Jamie Huggett.
