Australia wins against New Zealand in Devonport

The Australian Brendan Sexton won the Oceania Championship, Devonport 2012 (Australia.) This Saturday with a final time of 01:46:46, followed by New Zealander Kris Gemmell with a time of 01:47:27 and in third position came Australian Aaron Royle with a final time of 01:48:02

In the Women's category Australia showed its good shape, as it held the top three spots. Enma Jackson prevailed with a time of 01:56:36, followed in second place by Ashleigh Gentle at 50 seconds and Erin Densham took third place with a final time of 01:57:43

Sexton after a great sector of the race, investing a total of 30 minutes, 57 seconds, surpassed the New Zealand Kris Gemmell, current champion of Oceania, and the Australian Aaron Royle, in a test in which he did not plan to participate this year.

A fortnight ago, the 26-year-old athlete had to leave the Australian sprint distance championship in (Geelong) after his bike seat was broken. For this reason, Sexton decided to participate in Devonport, to run one last competition before the start of the ITU Triathlon World Series in Sydney.

Australian James Seear came out first out of the water with Courtney Atkinson, Mitchell Kealey and Tony Dodds following closely behind

Already on the bike a group of 15 men was formed, among which were Atkinson, Dodds, Gemmell, Royle, Bevan Docherty, Ryan Bailie and Ryan Fisher. They entered T2 a minute before the second platoon. Gemmell and Atkinson immediately took the lead, and soon Sexton topped them and ranked first to finish.

Gemmell's second place saw him win the 2012 New Zealand National Championship, while Tony Dodds came fourth and Atkinson fifth. Chris McCormack was fourteenth and took the eighth time in the race. Docherty was unable to complete the race.
