Triathlon Magazine Canada - - WARM UP NEWS -

Cale­don, Ont.’s Andrew Yorke and Carp, Ont.’s Joanna Brown cap­tured sil­ver and bronze re­spec­tively at the itu Pan Amer­i­can Cup sprint dis­tance triathlon held at Cler­mont, Fla.

“I’ve done less train­ing to this point than in pre­vi­ous years be­cause I wasn’t mak­ing it through the sea­son and be­ing healthy when it mat­tered the most,” said Yorke, who cov­ered the course in 56 min­utes and 28 sec­onds. “I’m tak­ing things pretty sim­ple. All the tests and tri­als show that I’m stronger now than I have been in the past. I’m swim­ming the best ever. I feel way bet­ter on the bike, and the run was good. Ev­ery­thing seems to be on track and that was the point of this weekend.”

“It was a good start­ing point for me. I can’t say that I was happy with the race, but part of be­ing high per­for­mance is also hav­ing high stan­dards,” said Brown, who fin­ished in 1:03:48. “I was ner­vous for the run to­day. My legs felt re­ally heavy and they weren’t happy to be go­ing right af­ter that bike. All in all it was a great way to shake out the cob­webs and have a punchy start to the sea­son.”
