We had a busy weekend with team members competing at the US Masters Long Course Nationals Swim Meet, Luray Triathlon, and Mont-Tremblant Ironman.
ARMS had eight members (Alison Mathey, Brittany Van Arkel, Joanne Hopkins, Colleen Moore, Jen Wheeler, Dan Summers, Aaron Frederick and John Guiffre) participate in the US Masters Long Course Nationals Meet at the University of Maryland and placed 28 out of 144 teams. Each member placed in the top ten for their age group in at least one event, ensuring that everyone on the team earned at least one medal! We also participated in the Mixed 200 Freestyle and Medley Relays earning 4th and 5th respectively. Many of the participants dropped time in their events and John Guiffre placed 1st in the Men’s 400 Meter IM in his age group!
Additionally, we had a strong showing with four team members (Steve Studley, Amanda Telford, Zsuzanna Jeney and Seb De La Cueva) competing in the Luray Triathlon.
Finally, Mike and Dawn Stevenson also participated in the Mont Tremblant Ironman. Dawn had a great first Ironman showing placing 5th in her age group and 22nd in the overall female category with a time of 10:37:52. Mike placed 68th overall and qualified for Kona with a time of 10:00:52!
