It was a beautiful morning when over 200 triathletes ran from the beach into Kootenay Lake for the start of the 29th Annual Cyswog’n Fun triathlon.  Dallas Cain of Rossland captured his fourth win of the event in a time of 2:03:04, finishing three minutes ahead of second place, Chad Reid of Lethbridge and third place Brad Kohlsmith of Calgary.  Cain came out of the water three minutes behind Reid, a 2010 National Champion at this distance.  Cain used the fastest bike of the race to move him into first place with 20 second lead, he then had the day’s fastest run to finish comfortably in first place.

“Nelson is always such a great race, awesome volunteers and very well organized.  Today was a lot of fun, having an athlete like Chad in the field keeps me full throttle the whole race.  I am excited now rest and get ready for Ironman Canada in Penticton,” Cain said after the race.

On the women’s side, first place went to Kelly Geisheimer, who smashed the competition in a time of 2:16:07.  Kelly finished eight minutes ahead of Kelowna’s Kari Bailey and twelve minutes ahead of Kelowna’s Jeanette Elmore.

Competing in the short course event Susanne Fraser finished first in her age group in a time of 1:23:59 and Maureen Brown finished second in her age group in a time of 1:32:04.  Other local atheletes competing included Stewart Daroux and Barbara Shields.
