Teo Ser Luck, who was one of the founding member of Trifam (an Ironman) in 2004, gave an introductory speech..also sponsored 100+ & Tiger beer for the event.

thoroughly enjoyable and the marshallers who were very encouraging and did their job well in terms of managing the traffic..no traffic wardens were hired for cost saving...very well done to the volunteers and organisers..

this race kicks off the season of biathlon and duathlon and triathlon races for 2012..

yap, uncle drank on behalf of those who didn't drink beer.. dozens cans for carbo replenishing, since only apples and bananas were available.. the best one is the oldest participant got 1 carton of Tigers as surprise prize..

just to end the forum thread with another writeup about the race: http://lead2tri.blogspot.com/2012/02/trifam-sprint-2012-pictorial-review.html

Yo bro, Russ..actually..these are triathletes that are experienced in local and overseas races..all are warming up for the Singapore Biathlon, Aviva Ironman 70.3 Singapore and IM events like Western Australia (early dec).. with some preparing for the coming one soon - IM NZ..

there are about 25 overseas competitors out of 130..the time you quoted..for sprint event..fast ones..some of us call this event..back to kindergarten.. but in actual fact..sprint tri event is a "youth Olympic standard" level..

just to add about the swim... sea bugs.."bite"...slight itchy discomfort..feeling like hand to scratch during swim..common..for open water swim..
