Rasmus Petreus and Melissa Hauschildt win Challenge Laguna Phuket
PHUKET: Rasmus Petreus of Denmark and Melissa Hauschildt of Australia are the respective men’s and women’s champions of the inaugural Challenge Laguna Phuket, having crossed the finish line with times of 4:05:06 and 4:30:29, respectively.
Mr Petreus was followed closely by Alberto Casadeli of Italy who clocked in at 4:07:13, and his Italian compatriot Alberto Alessandroni in 4:07:52.
From strength to strength, Melissa Hauschildt of Australia, who just won the Laguna Phuket Triathlon last week, was the uncontested “woman on top” for the second week in a row.
In distant 2nd and 3rd of the CLP, Hauschildt was followed by Rakha Vodakova of the Czech Republic and Tansin Lewis of Great Britain – who crossed the line 5 minutes and 47 seconds, and 14 minutes and 20 seconds after Hauschildt.
