The ever popular Camlough Lake Water Festival was well attended by TUNAs over the weekend.

Friday 21st August 2015 – Camlough Aquathon

Emily Cantley, one of our youngest representatives, made a great impact on the Junior Aquathon on Friday evening, finishing a fantastic 4th overall and 3rd female. Emily recorded a swim of 4.21 for the 300 metres and a run of 10.40 for the 2 kilometres, for an excellent finish time of 15.01. Great going Emily!

Saturday 22nd August 2015 – Camlough Super Sprint

This short distance, high speed event offered  a high intensity challenge for the four TUNAs who took part, with distances of 250m for the swim, 6k for the cycle, and finished off with a 3k run.

First TUNA over the line was our esteemed chairman, Dwyer O’Hagan, who powered across the finish line with the excellent time of 36.28. He was joined less than a minute later by Fiona Murphy, who took the accolades as first female, and 10th overall! All her hard work has definitely paid off this season, despite an encounter with a hit and run driver who knocked her off her bicycle a few months ago. Another fantastic TUNA female was next across the line – Emily Cantley finished in 39.08, and was 1st junior and 3rd female to complete the race, adding to her collection of podium placings. Joe Hendron rounded off the quartet of TUNAs with an impressive finish time of 40.52.

Saturday 22nd August 2015 – Camlough 5km Swim

Later that day, two TUNAs were taking on a longer distance challenge, in the shape of the 5k swim. Francie Haughey completed the race in skins, and covered the distance in the amazing time of 1hr 43min.

Edward Cantley also represented the TUNAs very impressively with a strong finish time of 2hr 24min.

Sunday 23rd August 2015 – Dublin Vodafone Olympic CAT 1 Race

Close to 1000 triathletes braved horrible weather conditons for the Standard Distance National Championships at Dublin City Triathlon.

Waves of age group athletes took on the 1500 metre swim, 40 kilometre bike and 10 kilometre run with everyone putting in brilliant performances to make it through the testing course.

Following the mornings non drafting races it was onto the draft legal Cat 1 action where the country’s top athletes along with some international talent was on show, featuring TUNA stalwart Philip Castles.

It has been a very new experience this season for Phil, mixing it with the country’s best in the draft legal format. Phil put in an excellent performance, and did his club proud, finishing 34th overall, in a fantastic 2hr 19min.
