Fast times at FNB Sandman

03 December 2019 | Sports

Over 330 participants took part in the 2019 FNB Sandman triathlon on Sunday in Swakopmund.

This was a significant improvement in turnout compared to last year, when around 270 athletes participated.

The athletes took part in various categories, which included the ultra, standard, sprint and mini.

β€œThe bulk of the people that took part this year just came to have a good day. They did it for fun. I think the competition was more on the social side. The majority of the people were social and just enjoyed doing it,” said event organiser Mark Brinkman.

The best swim time over a distance of 1.9km was recorded by Phillip Seidler (21:23). Conrad Marais had the fastest bike time over 90km (2:32:20), while Erich Goeieman ran a time of 1:16:11 over a distance of 21km.
