Very good performance and results from the IM70.3 in Remich on sunday – Claude Lucas won his 1st national triathlon title on the LD championships by setting a personal best time of 4h13:40
After a good swim, a strong bike split and a steady run in 1h24, he finished 20th overall out of ~2500 athletes and he won the national title, the first in his triathlon career. Well done! 2nd rank goes to Dany Papi (CAB) and 3rd podium rank goes to Christian Weyland in 4h29:45. What a podium.
In the women’s lux. elite field, Danièle Flammang took 3rd rank overall in good 5h06:01 just behind Sophie Margue (CAEG) and Anja Dziadek (TRILUX).

In addition, Manon Schiltz, Alain Jungen, Guy Bertemes and Emiliano Laruccia raced in a team relay with good results too.
