#TuksTriathlon: Sullwald races to second SA triathlon title

Posted on March 22, 2017

Wian Sullwald raced to win his second South African triathlon over the weekend at the Aldam-resort in the Free State.  The resort venue event was also an Africa Cup event.

The Tuks-triathlete covered the Olympic distance of 1 500 metres swimming, 40km on the bike and 10km running in 1 hr 54min and 25 sec. That was more than seven minutes clear of the runner-up Jonas Schomburg (Turkey) finishing in 2:01:47.

According to Sullwald this victory is just the confidence booster he needed before he flies out next week to compete at the New Plymouth World Cup (2 April 2017) and the Gold Coast  World Series-event a week after.
