Local athletes compete in Hy-Vee triathlon

The fourth annual Hy-Vee triathlon was held June 13 at Raccoon Park in West Des Moines, IA. Weather conditions forced the race to be shortened from an Olympic distance race to a sprint distance race.

 Vermillion's Justin Manning placed 47th in a time of 1:02:59 and Randy Rasmussen placed 91st in 1:05:08.

 There were 1,342 individuals and 263 teams that finished the race, which consisted of a 400-meter swim, a 20K bike ride and a 5K run. Gavin Anderson of Edwardsville, IA won the race in a time of 55:27.
