First in Columbia
Professional triathlete Aucklander Terenzo Bozzone, 24, has won the 26th annual Columbia Triathlon. In a stirring fight to the finish, Bozzone overtook Andrew Yoder of Columbia, Pennsylvania near the halfway point of the 10km race around Centennial Lake to win the rainy day race. “Andy Yoder passed me on the bike ride like I was standing,” Bozzone said. “I found my legs midway through the run and was able to pass him.” Bozzone finished second in this year’s New Zealand Ironman. In 2008 Bozzone won the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Clearwater, Florida setting a new course record of 3:40:10.
