Event comments:

Well organized, short sprint race. However, swimming in that retention basin would prohibit me from ever doing it again.

Also, the other major problem I had was the heats were not arranged by age group, so you couldn't really "race" people in your AG. Note that I came in 4th by 6 seconds, if i saw the guy ahead of me on the run I think I would have at least made an attempt to catch him,
