Tommy Marshall finishes 24th in US triathlon
Tommy Marshall placed 24th out of 63 top competitors in the Flatlands USAT Junior Elite Triathlon in Des Moines, Iowa, on Sunday.
Competing in his first US triathlon, Marshall made a good showing against some of the top junior triathletes in North America.
After a day of severe weather and tornadoes on Saturday, Sunday’s event took place in contrasting conditions — cool, cloudy and windy. Marshall made up ground after the swim with a strong performance in the 5km run where he clocked a time of 17min 30sec.
Marshall finished with an overall time of 1hr 3min 13sec, almost five minutes behind the winner.
