Johnson tearing through triathlon circuit

Chilliwack's Robert Johnson is unstoppable in 2015, winning race after race. His latest triumph was the Squamish triathlon.

Chilliwack’s Robert Johnson claimed first place in another race, leading the field at last weekend’s Squamish Triathlon.

Johnson, who’s made first place finishes routine business in 2015, topped a smaller field of 130 participants (48 women, 82 men) in the Olympic distance event.

Competing in the mens’ 30-34 age group, he crossed the line in 1:53:43, beating runner up Jeff Manson (Vancouver) by less than a minute (1:54:22). The third place finisher, Vancouver’s Carsten Lapointe, was much further back at 2:00:34.

Johnson clocked 00:21:00 in the swim,  00:55:07 in the bike and  00:37:36 in the run.

Blake Gooch, also from Chilliwack, finished 51st overall in 2:36:02.
