Trinona Stats...

lonelyswimmer.jpg ED. If this post looks similar to last year's Trinona preview, it is because it's the same story with minor revisions. We have not seen a list of entrants, thus we are unable to comment on this year's field.

TRINONA PREVIEW - The 13th edition of this classic event will be staged next weekend at it's ususal venue in Winona. We encourage you to sign up, if you haven't done so already. This is a special experience, one that is not to be missed.

Trinona's courses are as beautiful as they are challenging, and by challenging, we mean hilly. Of the eighteen sub-2-hour men's times on the Olympic-distance course, Thirteen have been set by pros. Only 13 women have cracked 2:20, and only one had dipped under 2:10, though only be seconds. You'll note that all of times we're talking about were turned in by national and world-class athletes.

Today, we are sharing some Trinona stats, starting with those performances mentioned earlier. We are also posting the Olympic Age Group records and the fastest times in the companion Sprint race.
