RACE RESULTS: TORONTO WORLD CUP
The Toronto world cup race was held August 5 on a near
perfect day (despite a bit of wind). This race was the
fifth on the world cup series and the second in Canada.
The field assembled for this was probably the strongest
ever assembled in Canada for an Olympic distance race.
Here are the results for the top men and women.
1- 1.50.18 Brad Bevan Australia
2- 1.51.13 Greg Welch Australia
3- 1.51.58 Dan Murray Canada
4- 1.52.36 Frank Clarke Canada
5- 1.52.41 Mark Bates Canada
6- 1.52.54 Nick Croft Australia
7- 1.52.56 Leandro Macedo Brazil
8- 1.53.09 Andrew McMartin Canada
9- 1.53.44 Garrett McCarthy U.S.A
10- 1.54.10 Simon Cassidy Canada
15- 1.54.40 Jeff Devlin U.S.A
16- 1.54.51 Ricardo Gonzalez Mexico
20- 1.56.49 Andrew McNaughton U.S.A
21- 1.56.55 Mike Pigg U.S.A
26- 1.58.44 Rip Esselstyn U.S.A
Bevan had a great swim (a minute faster than Welch). Both
Aussies started the run together but Bevan was too strong
on the hilly run course. The results outline the strength
of the Canadian team (Go Canada !!!) and the bad showing of the
Americans (Pigg flatted as far as I understand). Note that
McMartin is still a junior and that was Bates' second race
coming out of a mononucleosis.
1.- 2.02.09 Karen Smyers U.S.A.
2.- 2.03.11 Carol Montgomery Canada
3.- 2.03.46 Joanne Ritchie Canada
4.- 2.05.32 Terry Smith-Ross Canada
5.- 2.06.41 Isabelle Mouthon France
6.- 2.08.44 Sue Schlatter Canada
7.- 2.09.11 Catharina Davies Spain
8.- 2.09.29 Carol Gephart U.S.A
9.- 2.09.39 Beth Mitchell U.S.A
10.- 2.11.34 Beatrice Mouthon France
Smyers and Montgomery battled it out on the run till
the 7 th kilometer when Smyers pulled away. They faced
each other 3 times this year, Smyers leading 2-1.
The race will be on TSN in a couple of weeks.
How did I do ? Don't ask.
