EIGHTEEN teams took part in the 5th event of the 2014 Marco Polo Triathlon series at the Togalevu Navy Base outside of Suva on Saturday last week.

There were 62 participants in the day-long competition which included newcomers St John's College and Ecolab in the team category.

In the individual category, the newcomers included Papanui Liew and Maia Ramsden from International School, Reece Pene from St John's College, Kurt Johns from Marist and USP's Samantha Suederman.

The highlight of the day was Tim Noble's first place finish in the Olympic distance which increases his lead on the series points table.

Although Noble was the last to finish the 1.5 kilometre swim, he managed to close in on the leaders during the 40km bike before taking the lead in the 10km run.

Meanwhile, Andrew Pene was retained as the president of the Fiji Triathlon Association at its annual general meeting held on the same day.
