Stampflee’s steady successes

One of Sooke’s dedicated triathlon athletes, Owen Stampflee, competed at the Subaru Vancouver Triathlon.

One of Sooke’s dedicated triathlon athletes, Owen Stampflee, was (as far as the records show) the only Sooke resident to compete at the Subaru Vancouver Triathlon.

Oh July 14, Stampflee participated in the Half Iron, which he completed in 4:49:37.

This is almost two minutes faster than his time in the Saunders Subaru Victoria Triathlon (5:51:30) and nearly six minutes better than his Shawnigan Lake time (4:55:32).

While these improvements might seem incremental, they do add up over time. In just over a year, Stampflee has improved his time by an impressive 25 minutes. When he ran the Victoria triathlon a year ago, he clocked in at 5:15:50.

The Half Iron includes a 1.9 km swim, a 90 km bike, and a 20 km run. There were 257 men competing in this event, and 100 women. Stampflee placed 10 out of 25 in his age category, and 63 amongst the male competitors.

Overall in the Vancouver Triathlon, Stampflee placed in the top 20 per cent of competitors, at 74 out of 370 participants.

We’re keeping our Sooke News Mirror eagle eyes on this one.
