Sobey and Antoniades grab silver and bronze at Americas Triathlon Cup Long Beach

Prince Edward Island’s Martin Sobey (pictured above before the start of the World Triathlon Championship Series Yokohama race) tuned up for the upcoming Commonwealth Games in style with a silver-medal performance at this weekend’s Americas Cup Triathlon Long Beach, finishing a second out of first place behind American Davis Bove, who crossed the line in 52:01. Canada’s Pavlos Antoniades rounded out the podium.

“I am really happy to put together a solid race today across the swim, bike and run,” Sobey said. “This is just the result I needed to give me a confidence boost heading into Commonwealth Games.”

Sobey and Antoniades had got away in a small group on the bike, but the pack caught them with 5 km to go on the bike, setting up a tactical run race for the medals.

“The run was quite tactical and I just came up a bit short in the final sprint,” Sobey said.

“That solid swim put me with the leaders at the start of the bike,” Antoniades said, who finished in 52:04. “We were a small group working hard to maintain our lead but entered T2 with the chasers. It all came down to a fast run which I think I played well.”

“This podium means a lot to me,” said Antoniades. “It can be a challenge to juggle training, racing and medical school, but I’m doing my best to maintain a balance.”

Other Canadians in the field included Liam Donnelly, sixth (52:10), Filip Mainville, ninth (52:30) and Tristen Jones, 10th (52:34).

Beaulieu takes sixth

After winning the Canadian junior championship last week, Gatineau’s Noemie Beaulieu finished sixth (1:00:49) in the women’s race, which was won by American Gina Sereno (1:00:08). She led a large contingent of Canadian women in the race including: Kamille Larocque (13th), Alexandrine Coursol (14th), Kira Gupta-Baltazar (16th), Hannah Milic (22nd), Natalia Kolesova (26th), Ella Hnatyshyn (29th), Celine Marks (31st) and Raphaelle Rivard (32nd).
