On Sunday August 18 the West Down Wheelers triathlon duo consisting of Peter Savage and Paul McManus headed to the coastal village of Groomsport to compete in the Half Ireman.

In 2012 Peter finished in third place and Paul in 33rd place, so this year the duo put in a hard winter’s training which has been paying dividends throughout the 2013 season.

The Half Ireman at Groomsport consisted of a 1.9k swim, 90k bike and a 21k run.

With Peter and Paul both being on top form the final result was of no surprise when Peter finished the tough event in first place and Paul in fifth. The members of West Down Wheelers would like to congratulate Peter and Paul.
