Baku 2015 European Games Triathlon

Bob Haller has been selected to represent Luxembourg at the first edition of the European Games in Baku/Azerbaijan. The triathlon event over the olympic distance was held at the Bilgah Beach, the weather was very nice but hot with temperatures over 30 degrees.
After a good swim part in 19:33min and a fast transition, Bob left T1 on 32nd rank. He managed to close the gap to the bike field very quickly to come into T2 on 7th position overall after a regular bike part. By leaving T2, Bob was ranked 2nd overall but unfortunately, he couldn’t keep up the pace so he downgraded to 20th rank at the finish line. (run split : 35’12”)
Nevertheless, well done and a good show for Luxembourg!
Great Britain’s European U23 champion Gordon Benson won the men’s Triathlon in 1:48.31 after a thrilling battle in the hot sun at Bilgah Beach on Sunday.
