Mariana Ohata and Paulo Miyashiro made it a clean sweep for Brazil as they became the South American Triathlon Champions after their victory last weekend in Salinas, Ecuador. On the start lines were 51 elite triathletes from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Spain, United States, Hungary, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Uruguay.

Brazil showed their dominance in the men’s race and would have completed a 1-2-3,  but if it were not for Francesco Godoy (ESP-01:56:12) who stole the bronze medal from Bruno Mateus (BRA-01:56:13) in a thrilling sprint finish. The silver medal went to Antonio Da Silva (BRA-01:55:31) and the gold medal went to Paulo Miyashiro (BRA-01:54:31) who looks in impressive form after his first place at the San Andrés Triathlon in Colombia two weeks ago.

In the women’s race Mariana Ohata (BRA-02:05:49) was the easy winner in the end beating off Andrea Bonilla (ECU-02:08:19) and Bárbara Riveros (CHI-02:09:10) into second and third sports respectively.

Brasil domina en los Campeonatos Sudamericanos

Mariana Ohata y Paulo Miyashiro barrieron para Brasil al convertirse en los campeones Sudamericanos de Triatlón con su victoria el pasado fin de semana en Salinas, Ecuador. En la línea de salida había 51 atletas de elite de Argentina, Bolivia, Brasil, Canadá, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, España, EEUU, Hungría, México, Puerto Rico y Uruguay.

Brasil demostró su dominio en la carrera de los hombres y podría haber copado el podium de no ser por Francesc Godoy (ESP – 01:56:12) quién arrebató la medalla de bronce a Bruno Mateus (BRA – 01:56:13) en un tenso sprint final. La medalla de plata fue para Antonio Da Silva (BRA-01:55:31) y la de oro para Paulo Miyashiro (BRA-01:54:31) al que se ve impresionante desde su primer puesto en el Triatlón de San Andrés, Colombia, de hace dos semanas.

En la carrera de la mujeres Mariana Ohata (BRA-02:05:49) se hizo fácilmente con la victoria después de dejar atrás a Andrea Bonilla (ECU-02:08:19) y a Bárbara Riveros (CHI-02:09:10) segunda y tercera respectivamente.
