Ben wins Pan Am Cup in San Francisco
Months of training and preparation fell into place for Garmin-sponsored triathlete Ben Collins when he surged to a first-place finish in the San Francisco Pan American Cup Triathlon last Saturday. Ben beat out Steve Sexton of the USA and Adriano Sacchetto of Brazil. His time for the 1.5K swim, 40K bike, and 10K run was 1:56:19, nineteen seconds ahead of Sexton.
Excerpts from the San Francisco Triathlon press release: Collins won in dramatic style, exiting the water in first place and leading for the entire race. A pack of seven men gave chase on the draft-legal bike leg, but never got closer than thirty seconds. The cool, sunny and windy conditions suited Collins, who is accustomed to training in similar conditions back home in Seattle. Collins posted a 35-minute 10K to secure the win. The victory was the first for Collins, who turned professional in 2007 after winning the ITU Amateur World Championships in Hamburg, Germany. Collins is currently ranked 47th in the International Triathlon Union points ranking.
