Town of Pasadena Humber Valley Triathlon Female triathlon champion praises other women for having the guts to compete
Sue Rodgers was all smiles after winning the women’s crown at the 2014 Marble RV Corner Brook Triathlon, but it was the presence of other females on the course that gave her the most satisfaction on a hot Sunday afternoon.
Rodgers won the women’s title with a final clocking of 2:33:09.03, which was good enough for eighth spot overall in a field of 18 in the main event of the day.
She was happy to see so many women on the course, especially so many females of all ages and backgrounds making their debut on the triathlon scene.
“To me, this is such a great sport for women. We all enjoy it, we love the events, but we were scared to race,” Rodgers said after the race. “So, seeing that many women out there ripping it up was just awesome.”
