Had a look at the results again... pzdipr picked this up yesterday.

Our race is 3mins off! The girl who got first apparently took six minutes to complete 200m.... Ummm... Like what the hell dude?? And she was fast! 5mins for me is an average time... Six minutes for the fastest competetor is just WRONG. (200m??? No current at the time? C'mon!)

So maybe I did come sixteenth... But I know I had a blinder of a ride. I was one of the fastest on the ride so I'm okay with that. :)

But here's an interesting fact... My ride time is the second fastest (the fastest ride time that made it to the results is only 30s faster!)

My run time is very middle of the pack though.

Still a little pissed off about yesterday.  But what can I do eh?  I made my complaint. 

I got a response... So all I can do is sit on it...  I want to write my race report... But it's no good SAYING what my time was and then seeing what the actual results were.  ;_;

I am absolutley GUTTED. I could cry! What I have just read has spoilt my fantastic event, and a fantasticly well run event. READ ON Could this could happen to you!!


I had a FANTASTIC race. I really enjoyed myself. Had a great swim, came out middle of the pack and didn't lose my navigation at all. I looked down coming out of the water (after a massive grope fest) and saw 5:47. I clicked my HRM on the mats though for a time of 6:15.92. BLINDER of a bike leg. 10:01 on my bike computer for 5km... INCLUDING the transitional runs. Clicked my HRM on the timimg mats again though and clocked 12:55.36 (progressive time of 19:11.28) Run was good. People overtook me but I managed to claw some of the way back. I KNEW I havd finished somewhere in the top ten because there weren't that many women accross the finish yet with HH on their legs. I felt REALLY ill because I was trying to beat my last time of 31:40 for this distance (Raby Bay) so I'd sprinted the last 500m... A HUGE effort for me. I finished the run in 11:34.43 (Average heart rate of 193bpm!) and my final time as I JUMPED onto the mat and stopped the clock was 30:45.71!!!! I was drywretching at the finish because I worked really really hard today.


My timing chip failed! And what's worse is because it failed - My time is posted at 16th place.

The time on my watch says 30:45!!! A PB!!! - GOOD ENOUGH FOR FOURTH PLACE ACCORDING TO THE RESULTS PAGE!!!!!

The time my chip SUPPOSEDLY says I did was 33:49 - 2mins slower than raby and I don't have a run or bike time posting... WHAT THE HELL????


USM events have posted this message on the results page.

The Timing Wizards who time this event, had a security issue at the Cycle split at QTS race 5. This caused miss of approx 30% of the field at this point. If you have a time estimate you can contact please State your number and estimated times and we will update the times accordingly. We appollogise for any inconvenience this has caused.

I'm posting my times in... RACE REPORT will come when my REAL time with my REAL placing.


I KNOW I did well. I don't get a medal but I want MY TIME!!!! I want my PB!!!! I want the mental and physical effort I put into this race to be RECORDED RIGHT!!!

Really really annoyed... REALLY needed to vent.

Why the hell am I so tired??? 

Anyway.  It's Saturday... The Caloundra Tri is TOMORROW... and I am SOOOO unmotivated.  Perhaps I'll be feeling more excited about it tomorrow.
