Medal rush at the Swiss triathlon championships!

8. August 2010

The Salvisberg Dynasty reached for the stars, respectively for the medals: although the designed favourite Lukas Salvisberg was not at the start due to an injury, the younger brothers were not less motivated and showed the Swiss elite that they will be hard contenders in the future. After a usual strong swim leg, the Salvisberg duo showed a brilliant performance on the bike and confirmed its form on the final run leg. Close behind Sven Riederer, third at the Olympics in Athens, Andrea, the older of the youngsters, ranked just ahead of Florin, the youngest of the three brothers. In the ranking of the category U23, the Salvisberg duo celebrated a one-two win and continued so their strong season so far. In the main category (age 20 to 35) the BMC-employee Adrian Zahnd won the bronze medal.
