For the guys, St. Louis Park resident Dan Hedgecock placed 3rd overall for the second consecutive year. He was crowned 25-29M National Champion. Bloomington's Patrick Parish placed 6th (3rd 25-29M) and Columbia Heights' Matt Payne 10th (35-39 National Champ). This was the Matt's 2nd National title. He won the 30-34M AG in 2010.
Duluth's Brian Bich, 46, once again won the 45-49M AG, placing 21st overall in 2:00:02, which was the 2nd fastest time ever at Nationals by a 45-plusser. The fastest ever was a 1:58 turned in by Bich on this course in 2011.
The overall National champions were Pennsylvania's Brian Duffy, last year's runner-up and 2009 Triathlete Magazine Athlete of the Year, and Atlanta's Haley Chura, who placed 6th overall in her last Nationals appearance two years ago, and 9th the year before that....
