Americans Cameron Dye and Sarah Haskins earned the victories at Sunday’s Philadelphia Insurance Triathlon.
Dye used his signature race style to take the 1:48:48 win in Philadelphia. He led out of the swim, dominated the bike and held on in the run for the top spot. Potts posted a 10K run time of 32:52, the fastest of the day, to finish second. Ben Collins made it an all-American podium, finishing 13 seconds back of Potts.
Haskins was one of the strongest athletes in the swim, bike and run and easily earned the victory in Philadelphia. Originally it was Alicia Kaye and her sister-in-law Jenna Parker rounding out the podium, but reports state that the pair, along with other professional women, were disqualified due to not following the correct swim course. With the disqualifications, Sara McLarty (USA) placed second and Jennifer Tetrick (USA) earned third.
The race was the third event in the Life Time Fitness Triathlon Series Race to the Toyota Cup. Haskins will maintain her lead, while Dye will remain in second behind Collins.
