Chris Leiferman and Suzie Olsen were victorious at the Fairmont Olympic Triathlon for the second consecutive year. And both were significantly faster than in 2009.

I loved the Liberty Tri last year even though I had a bit of a meltdown.
Part of me wanted to go back because I felt like I had unfinished

great new race and the opportunity to be a part of it, help it grow, and
stay closer to home in Rochester proved too tempting.
It was my first race of the year so my main goal was just to race hard ...
