Feburary 2011

Kong Kei Fat Choi!

Apology for skipping the newsletter last month since the one man editorial office had not been able to clear up the mind for some write up last in January, many people down with flu last month since the continuous low temperature in HK  (well not those -20...), I hope the flu crowd is not much from Sonic Triathletes as some of us are still actively doing some long session for the coming HK marathon! Or for the coming season!

Duathlon race 1 recap
The first race of the season kick off in 30 Jan. Some of the new stars to watch this year!
Men 30-34
Michal, Tim and Sebastien in a row for 2-4th; Michal promoted to the new AG for more challenge, ranked 1st runner up after AJ Anderson of Tritons; Tim's strong run leg secure the 3rd position and Sebastien right after!
Sonic girls power to be regenerated in such early season, only two representing in AG30-39, Pearl Tie ranked 4th while Stephanie Yeung (Bina) ranked 6th! Junior Michael Lam ranked 3rd in Youth Open after being selected to join HkG regional squad, and Kong Yan Pui won champion in her age group.
More good result in coming races!

Duathlon race 2
TriA duathlon race 2 will be this Sunday, same place, same course, start list already posted on TriA website. No training in Shek O.

Farewell but not a goodbye: Susanna, Ren, and Timothy
We have three very keen Sonic Triathletes move on this year; Susanna Campunzo have job relocation to Dallas, she joint us since 2008 as a very beginner triathlete and start developing her fitness and strength, and race with everyone in many Sonic trip, Ironman China 2009 was her eyes open trip, she was quickly inspired and addicted into the Ironman triathlon, year 2010 was her dance floor, finishing the first 70.3 in Singapore, 6 months later she became podium finisher at Hk triathlon and Taiwan 70.3! A good athletes takes 3-5 years to develop, she is one of the example, 3 years of life in Sonic with 2 times Triathlete of the year, we all miss you Su!

Ren Ho is another cheerful young man who love the sports of triathlon and help a lot in the recent year of Phuket LPT for Sonic accommodation, he joint us since 2007, he relocated to Shanghai last month.

While Timothy Cosulich is a semi built Triathlete before he joint us in last October, he is already an Ironman finisher after one 70.3 attempt but he always humbly claims himself a beginner, he joint us in last October and he has been raced Phuket LPT with us and just experienced his first podium finish in Duathlon, he will move to Singapore this month but we will probably see him back in the Aquathlon season!
