The second race of the 2018 Birkirkara St. Joseph Sprint Triathlon Series, which took place in Salina recently, saw current National Triathlon Champion Graham Borg take the honours with a comfortable win in a time of 1:02:50. The result came exactly a week after Borg having raced in the gruelling Ironman Austria Race achieving a sub-10 hour result.

Borg was third out of the water following Bernard Sant and Nikol Micallef however a strong performance on the bike saw him clock the fastest bike split for the day. Onto the run Borg kept on a steady pace to win with a nearly two minute advantage over second placed Shaun Galea (1:04:52) who was followed by Mark Bosworth in third place, in a time of 1:05.31.  The fastese run split was registered by Birkirkara St. Joseph athlete Jesrit Camilleri.

 

Despite first race front runners Margaret Seguna and Lara Buttigieg not present on the day, Anjelika Ruggier produced a good showing to win the race and improve her time, from the previous race by just over 5 minutes, registering improved times on the bike and run leg.  Second placed triathlete was newcomer Miriam Borg Saydon who registered a 38 second improvement on her overall time. Third place on the podium was Angele Cortis.
