One of our favourite Hammer sponsored athletes – I know we shouldn’t have favourites, but she’s just so nice! – Michelle Wu has done it again.
A great time for the Olympic distance Tri.
Michelle sang the praises of her new Orca Apex 2 wetsuit, which you’d need on a cold Nowra morning.
She felt great on the bike leg and came into the last transition in 2nd place.
Michelle absolutely smashed her previous best in the 10km run leg with a sizzling hot 36 mins 39 seconds to take a pretty easy win in the end (she would never say that, of course!).
Michelle has never run a sub-40 minutes for 10 km before in a Olympic distance tri, so to absolutely smash through that barrier was a big thrill for her.
Here’s what Michelle wrote to me:
“I’m over the moon to have finally cracked it – in a big way!)
1st overall female, 7th overall (including the boys!), total time 2:07:14 hrs – a PB for an Olympic distance event! (and a 7min PB from last years race!).”
4 Tridents In Top 10
“Well done to all fellow Tridents who braved the tough course. I hope you all achieved your pre-race goals! 4 Tridents in the top 10! a great result for the club!”
“I Did It My Way”……Or Maybe Not!

Or maybe not!
