Description

It was a case of the usual suspects at this year’s Aukeman sprint triathlon.

For the second year in a row, Jordan Callahan took first for women with a time of 1 hour, 13 minutes and 37 seconds; 2015 champion John Bursell took the men’s crown at 1:04:30.

Callahan beat out Jamie Bursell (1:20:08) and April Rezendez (1:18:06) for the title. She credits her family’s newest addition with the win.

“Well, we got a dog, so we’ve been doing a lot of running,” Callahan said.
