Triathlon in Bohol

BOHOL – Sam Betten and Dimity Lee Duke head a big field of over 600, including newcomers, elite performers and the pros as they slug it out in a test of strength and stamina in the Bellevue Resort 5i50 Triathlon firing off today at the Bellevue Resort in Panglao Island here.

Although the Aussie tandem remains the triathletes to beat owing to their form, experience and skills, reversals are not being ruled out both in the men’s and women’s side of the centerpiece pro category of the 1.5k swim, 40k bike and 10k run event as well as in the elite and age group competitions.

Top Filipina triathlete Monica Torres, a consistent top finisher, has begged off due to personal reasons but Rebecca Ohlwein, Betten’s girlfriend who has been competing since 2012, is in the fold, ready to challenge Duke along with Amelia Watkinson and Michelle Duffield.
