Joanna Lawn and Michael Poole were victorious at the Whangamata triathlon on Jan. 3, 2010. Lawn’s victory comes after an eighth place finish at the Ironman World Championship back in October. Poole, on the other hand, used the race to make a statement heading into the 2010 season. The 19-year-old has been placing atop the leader board in many of New Zealand’s summer races.
