A total victory for Oslofjord triatlon

This Sunday, Oslofjord triathlon had the best day at a competition since the club was founded. And what could be a better race to choose than the National Championship? We knew that our member from Nice, Thomas Leth-Olsen, was more than competent, but not everybody was prepared for today’s total knock out.

On the swim and bike he followed the reigning champion Øyvind Johannessen and Tom Remman, but early on the run he said good bye and headed for the gold medal. Even Olsen from Oslofjord triatlon is a fantastic runner and showed us this again. From a position a little further back, he secured a bronze medal with a fantastic half marathon. 1 hour and 13 minutes is just brutal.

But Norways largest triatlon club is more than the guys on the podium. Today the members of the club showed a fantastic fighting spirit, great sportsmanship and team spirit. 25 members crossed the finishing line and although it is a cliché, it is still true: Today they were all winners.

And what did I do? I waved our flag and shouted. It’s a fairly easy job, but someone has to do those as well.
