Here in the States, John Misner finished the Chisago ½ IM in Minnesota with a time of 6:32. His time last year in the same race was 7:18. John demanded that I note in this report that he was un-coached by Camelback Coaching prior to the same race last year. 🙂

In Arizona, Julie Kimball took 1st in her AG at the Cotton Classic Time Trial. Julie will be racing in the USA Cycling National Championships later this summer.

On the swimming side, we want to congratulate Tom Ottman who qualified for Junior Nationals in both the 200 and 400 meter freestyle at Summer Sectionals last weekend in Portland, OR. He dropped 3 seconds in his 200 free to swim 1:55 and dropped 4 seconds in the 400 to swim 4:06. Congratulations, Tom!

Good luck to Kirk Lacko, Patrick Haenel, Eero Allison and Heather Dean  who are racing Ironman Boulder this weekend!
