"Swam the course today and probably the most perfect aquamarine, clear water I have ever swum in, perfect temperature and from a white sandy beach, it is a tough life!"

Kerry and Kirsten Sweetland

- "It's a tough life!"

 

 

"....I led out the water and off the bike, worked the girls hard and ran my best - getting good points for my Olympic campaign. Now tired after my tour of the island and one or two sips of the local rum...."

Speaking from her training base in Florida Kerry said “I was really happy with my race and I think my coach will be smiling too-“

Although usually her strongest discipline, the swim did not go according to plan

“The water was really rough and I was struck by a massive wave which meant finishing the swim without my cap and goggles!”

The bike section was also a tough and she had to draw upon all the descending skills learned from cycling coach Jim Cusick.

“The course was really tough- 7 laps with a 700m climb and three hairpin bends on the descent- I was able to use my bike skills to my advantage and tire the other girls out before the run.”

As running has not been Kerry’s main focus this year it was sheer determination that got her the result.

“My running coach Derek Parker at Kilbarchan AAC has helped me lots over the years to improve my run so he will be very pleased with the win.”

“Conditions also played an important factor – it was 28 degrees and 75% humidity so the Florida training camp was critical as I was acclimatised in a way I could not have been if I’d been training in Scotland.”

 Her next event is in Clermont , Florida on Saturday March 3rd.

 

 

Kerry leads the Team GB girls to 123

"1st out the water and 1st into transition off the bike, small pack of 9 out the water, managed to drop 2 girls pushing the pace early but only 3 of us working so fatigue set in on the run - moved up to 35th in the world rankings with this. Out to Sydney on monday for another training block and a couple more races. Happy with this just 6 days after last race" Kerry after the race
