Greg Turner of the Ayrodynamic Triathlon Club retained his Isle of Bute Triathlon sprint title on Sunday as the event made a welcome return to the island’s sporting calendar.
Turner, who won the last Bute triathlon in 2011, completed the course in a remarkable time of 58 minutes and three seconds to confirm a successful defence of his title.
He was one of more than a hundred competitors from all over Scotland and beyond who took part in Sunday’s gruelling race.
Bute athlete Shaun Lyon followed up his 285th-place finish in last month’s London marathon by crossing the line as the first local finisher in a time of one hour, 11 minutes and 26 seconds.
