Whats is your best plan for weekends? Our coaches can’t get enough of summer races which Stockholm offers to any sport addicted person. This time our co-founders Anna and Oxana have participated in Stockholm Triathlon.
The Stockholm triathlon celebrates 10th anniversary this year (2008-2018). As before, the competition was organized in the central parts of town, with only a few minor changes from previous years. The race’s hub with start, finish and meeting places were located at the magnificent town hall at Kungsholmen. The swimming took place in the glittering Riddarfjärden, the cycle along Norr Mälarstrand, across the Västerbron and Söder Mälarstrand. The closing race took place towards the city, across beautiful Norrbro and by the castle.
It was great event in the center of Stockholm, full of positive and friendly atmosphere. And for our club it was amazing team building opportunity. Our girls swam 1609m distance.
Our coaches are the best, even though 2 of them were on holidays and couldn’t attend. And the biggest surprise was 10th place of our Saima in the race. Congratulations! We are so proud. But also proud of Anna and Hoyi of course.
