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.
