My buddy David is PO'ed on his time 1:00:09 for his Sprint.
He took 2nd. Here's his story.
He started in the first wave and led the whole way to the finish line.
He was the first to cross the finish line in first wave.
Later when he checked the results, his name was not there.
Found out the race director that primary timing device didn't get it.
They went to the backup timing and it didn't get it as well.
They had to go to the video tape and try to figure out his time.
After hours they came back with 1:00:09.
He came home and download the race file from his watch and it showed 59:15.
He's not contesting the placement. Just bad timing.

How could the timing crew be not ready?

I did the Olympic today and it was my first tri. I loved it. I freaked out a bit in the first 400m or so in the water, but it was my first OWS and time in a wetsuit so caulk it up to inexperience. The bike and run were great.

Heard this from Leah this afternoon. Don't understand how this could have happened, either.

i talked with David after. That sucks. He at least knows he was under an hour. It doesnt change his placement. Second is still amazing. I think it's so funny that he won't go up in distance, until he wins a sprint. His bike is so fast anything with a longer bike just helps him.

I know it can be frustrating, but after volunteering at a few of frontrunners events, so many things can go wrong. Buffalo overall really is a solidly well organized event, especially for the amount of participants.

Way to get your first tri, and it being Olympic distance. How did you like it?

Thanks. I loved it, which is fortunate since I have already registered for a couple more this summer. I definitely could use a little more OWS practicing though. Luckily lakes are getting to the point where that is possible without totally freezing.

Josh, That's a great time, and an incredible swim for a "first time OWS and wet suit"! And...holy smokes you're a fast runner!!! Just out of curiosity, what do you think held you up in transition?

Starting June 18 from 5:30-7:30pm, there will be OWS at Lake Nokomis. Lifeguards will be on duty, and there is a 600-yard (give or take) course marked out. I'm going to take advantage of this as often as I can!

Thanks.

I think it was lack of preparation. I haven't really practiced transitions beforehand. In T1I had to put on a jersey, socks, road shoes, helmet, sunglasses. I wasn't hurrying up from the lake to my bike either. I think wearing a tri top under my wetsuit, going sockless and working on flying mounting my bike would help cut down my T1.
