Johnson speedy in Subaru sprint

One of Chilliwack's top triathletes, Robert Johnson, got an early season warmup at Shawinigan Lake.

Three locals tried their luck in the Subaru Shawnigan Lake Triathlon, an event held last Sunday.

Shawinigan Lake is near Victoria, and this was one of the events on the Subaru Western Triathlon Series.

Chilliwack’s Robert Johnson competed in the sprint event, finishing first overall with a time of 59 minutes and 54 seconds.

Johnson completed the 500 metre swim in six minutes and 30 seconds, downed the 22 kilometre bike ride in 33:16 and covered the five kilometre run in 17:36.

Jeff Holliday and David Poole competed in the Olympic distance — a 1.5 kilometre swim followed by a 44 kilometre bike ride and 10 kilometre run. Holliday finished 137th overall, crossing the finish line in 3:17.33.

Poole was 162nd overall with a time of 3:46.18.
