It was a festive day for triathletes this weekend in Costa Teguise, which held the 4th edition of tri122 middle distance triathlon.
One hundred triathletes gathered at 8:00h in Playa de Las Cucharas where it was a perfect sunny day with no wind.

The second place went to the Austrian Daniel Herlbauer (4:25:21), who had prepared for the competition in Sands Beach Resort, while third place was occupied by the Lanzarote triathlete Daniel Armas (4:36:28).
The winner in the female category was the Austrian Michaela Herlbabuer, stopping the clock at 4:38:51.
