Athletes battled the weather in Ironman Canada event in Whistler last month

Nine Oceanside Triathlon athletes competed in Whistler for Ironman Canada, July 26.

While the weather wasn’t ideal, pouring rain for the first four hours at a brisk six degrees at 7 a.m., many athletes were not able to finish thanks to the cold weather.

This Ironman marked the first for team members Duane Bader, Stacey Neilson, Andrew Speed, Dave Patterson and Nancy Patterson, though she was not able to finish.

Awards went to Patterson, who finished second in the Men’s 65-69 division. Heidi Bromley had a fourth place finish in the Female 60-64 division and Barry Carr finished third in the Men’s 70-74 division.
