Prague, Czech Republic – This weekend was the European Long Course Championships in the beautiful city of Prague. Named the “BIGMAN”, the course draws athletes determined to be big people in the triathlon world. AVIA sponsored, TBB athletes, Lisbeth Kristensen and Lucie Zelenkova, decided to put themselves to the test in a race that draws both speedy ITU athletes and Ironman endurace phenoms. The race covers a 4k (2.49mi.) swim, 120k (74.6mi) bike, and 30k (18.6mi) run.
Teammates Kristensen & Zelenkova worked together on the swim. Lucie has had a stacked season and seemed to be feeling the results of last weekend’s racing at Antwerp 70.3. And Kristensen, commented that her legs just haven’t worked right since her 3rd place performance at Ironman Switzerland. Despite not feeling 100%, Lisbeth posted the 2nd fastest swim split and a top 3 bike & run times. Kristensen who competes for Denmark, completed the distance in 6:22:57 for 3rd place on the podium. Lucie Z. finished in 6th place.
