SIXTY-three individuals and 17 teams took part in the ninth leg of the 2014 Marco Polo Triathlon series at the USP Lower Campus in Laucala Bay on Saturday.

Fiji Triathlon Association president Andrew Pene said the newcomers included Team Adi Cakobau School which had services of Unaisi Vatulili, Maopa Tabualovoni, Oripa Adicoka and Team WHO comprising Tim Noble, Kevin Wong and Peter Hoejskov.

"The highlight was in the 40 kilometre cycling stage of the Olympic distance team category with USP's George Lal overcoming the strong winds to set the fastest 40km cycling time for the course at 1 hour 15.05 minutes," Pene said.

"The USP Triathlon Club is acknowledged for successfully hosting the event with the assistance of Fulton Hogan Hiways and the Navy."
