Michelle Gailey Returns to Bali
Michelle Gailey, last year's overall female winner at the 3rd MRA International Triathlon,
is returning to Bali to participate in this year's event. The young Australian triathlete who earned first overall female honors in the recent Northern Territory State Championship
in both Olympic and sprint distances, will return to the field of contenders at this year's MRA BIT.
Last year, she clocked 02:36:39 in the Olympic distance event. Michele arrives in Bali with the personal aim of beating her own person best in Bali from last year's race.
Three weeks prior to race day, registrations year-on-year are running 25% ahead of last year's MRA BIT.
New registrations continue to flow in at a brisk pace with added interest in this year's addition of the additional Sprint Distance category comprised of 500 meter swim, 20 kilometer cycle course and a 5 kilometer road run for new athletes trying out for the very first time and or those more comfortable with shorter distance. And, for the purest, the Olympic distance race continues to draw both individuals or three-person relay teams. Registration and More Information
