More than 700 international athletes from over 20 countries participated in the 4th MRA Bali International Triathlon in Indonesia on Sunday.
The event took place at the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay.
The weekend featured an Olympic distance event and sprint distance event with team events and other shorter races for the less fit.
The winner of the Olympic distance of 1.5 kilometer swim, 40 kilometer cycle and 10 kilometer run was German Jen Wilken clocking in at 2:27:22.
Meanwhile, Australian athlete Michelle Gailey celebrated her honeymoon by winning the women's event, clocking 2:29:43, that's six minutes faster than her winning time last year.
Introduced for the first time was a shorter sprint distance event to welcome athletes unprepared to cover the more arduous Olympic distance course.
First there’s a 500 meter swim in Jimbaran Bay, followed by a 10 kilometer bike ride, and ending with a 5 kilometer run through Jimbaran Village.
Australians Evan and wife Nicole Gallagher won the men’s and women’s events, respectively.
