2012 Buffalo Triathlon | Buffalo, Minnesota

This was Matt's second year competing in the Buffalo Triathlon. He did the sprint distance last year and did great. He loved the race, so he entered the olympic distance race for this year.

There were 1,500 racers this year, and 25 different swim waves. It was crazy seeing all the racers and spectators! The Lakes Area Multisport group had a great turnout with at least a dozen racers, some who raced the sprint and some who raced the olympic. The weather was amazing and there was a lot of support and enthusiasm from the spectators. It all came together to be a great day!

Matt did a phenomenal job. He placed 39th out of 387 Olympic racers, and won 1st out of 33 in his age group. He won a sweet gift certificate and is planning on investing in an aero helmet with his winnings. There were several other LAMS racers who placed in the top three of their age groups, so once again, it was a great race for the Brainerd crew. It will be fun to see how the rest of the races of the season play out!
