TRINONA - A quick glance at the Trinona X results tells us that GABY BUNTEN had threepeated, and by her bigliest margin yet. We had correctly predicted that ISU triathlete Jeff Mettler would join Gaby in the Olypic Winners' Circle.

We were most impressed with the number of teen athletes that rocked out in Winona last Sunday. Minneapolis (by way of Waconia, we think?) triathlete MATTHEW TRACY, 18, who flew under the radar in 2017 because he did his most impressive racing on Wisconsin soil, placed 2nd overall in the men's Olympic contest.

It was in the Sprint, were most of the juniors rocked out, though. Following winner  CHRISTOPHER BUDAHN, 35, of Kenyon, was silver medalist / 2017 JOY nominee CARTER DEICHMAN, 17, of Mankato. Also in the men's Top 5 were Carter's brother CARSON, 15 (4th) and Cambridge's JACK HENNEN, 17 (5th). Budahn was also victorious the previous weekend at Eau Claire.

2017 Junior of the Year TAYLOR LUNDQUIST, now 18, and her sister SIMONE, 15, though fatigued from having competed in the State Track Meet the previous day, placed 2nd and and 9th respectively. Taylor finished  only 20 seconds behind winner MIKKA NORBYRESULTS  ...



CY THROWS DOWN - CATHY YNDESTAD, now 40, placed 3rd overall among the amateur women at picturesque Rapperswill 70.3 in Switzerland last Sunday. CY is in her 4th year of living, working and studying abroad (based in Zug, CHE) and we miss her and her husband Kerry terribly. We sure hope they return to Minnesota when their time in Europe is up. Fingers crossed. 

TEDDY CRUSHES - TED TREISE, 24, of Minneapolis, continues to prove that he can bark with the Big Dogs in our region. Following his Top 5 at Apple, he placed 6th among amateur men at Eagleman 70.3 in Cambridge, Maryland two days ago. His time was 4:15:39, an eight-minute lowering of his half IM personal best.

MADISON 70.3 - Despite yucky weather which signifantly slowed finisher times (only one woman broke 5-hours!), three Minnesotans cracked the overall women's Top 20 on Sunday at Madison 70.3: 9. BECKY YOUNGBERG, 5:18:22 (2nd 40-44), 12. CATHERINE LEE, 5:21:12 (2nd 40-44), 18. SHEENA DAUER, 5:23:09 (2nd 35-39). Additionally, SUE RUBENS won the 50-54W category. Her time was 5:39:01.
