(Photo from nationals 2009)Amy Kirkham from the University of British Columbia Triathlon Club competed earlier today at the World Triathlon Championships in Gold Coast Australia.
In her second appearance representing Canada, Amy put together a strong performance finishing in 19th out of 84 in one of the hardest and largest age groups, 25-29 and being the 50th female overall and the top overall Canadian in the age group.
In slow swim conditions (whole group was 1-2 minutes slow) Amy has improved greatly over the past year to complete the 1500m swim in 27:08. After a quick 1:40 transition she was onto a blistering 1:06:36 for the 40km bike (36km/h)!
Amy finished strong in her best event rounding out a time of 2:15:48 with a 48 second T2 and a 39:38 run time!
Good Job Amy, all impressed back home and can't wait to hear about it.
