(6/27/2011)

Three time charmed, after winning in Bali in 2009 and 2010, Australian Michelle Mitchell was the first athlete across the finish line at the 5th BIZNET Bali International Triathlon on Sunday, June 26, 2011.

Her third consecutive victory, Mitchell trimmed 2 minutes off the “Bali Best” time crossing the finish line in 2:27:03 after swimming 1.5 kilometers in Bali’s Jimbaran Bay, cycling 42.5 km through South Bali and the Ungasan Peninsula, and running 10 km through the village streets of Jimbaran.

Pledging to return to Bali in 2012, Mitchell said local traffic conditions and the hills on the bike course made the Olympic distance event especially challenging. Mitchell, who has only competed in triathlon events for three years,  has also won amateur titles in Singapore and the Philippines in Ironman events.

Second place in the woman’s division went to Michelle Boyes timing 2:40:30 followed by Kate Emily Robertson, also of Australia with a time of 2:56:49.

Leading the men in the Olympic distance competition was David Boyes, Michelle’s husband, who finished 4 minutes after his wife with a time of 2:31:07 to lead the men’s Olympic category. Close on Boye’s heels across the finish was David Edwards at 2:31:53.

The top individual Indonesian men’s finisher in the Olympic Distance event was Kadri Regar with a time of 2:38. Meanwhile the top Indonesian finisher crossed the finish line at 3:39:16.

Kadri Regar was the top Indonesian men’s finisher in the Olympic-distance race, completing the swim in 32:49, the bike ride in 1:17:13 and the run in 47:58. The top Indonesian women’s finisher had an overall time of 3:39:16.

Sprint Distance

The Sprint Distance event, covering distances roughly half that of the Olympic Category, saw Michael Turnball from the United Kingdom log a time of 1:16:38 followed by German Roman Floesser at 1:18:15. Third place went to Indonesian Mashuri with a time of 1:19:15

The Women running the sprint distance were led by Rachael Gaundry at 1:20:04, followed Englishwoman Ketaurah Hughes at 1:33:18 and Indonesian Caroline Lafeac in third at 1:34:06.

Rounding out the day was a 5 km fun run which saw several hundred runners sweep through the village of Jimbaran.

The race started shortly after 7 a.m. with the vice-regent of Badung, I Ketut Sudikerta, officially starting the runners into the surf. As racers covered the various courses, a morning party at the beach in Jimbaran took place at the Coconut Grove in front of the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay.

The location of the finish line, the Coconut Grove also played host to live music and entertainment throughout the morning with local vendors offering food and drink, merchandise and free massages from Jari Menari.
