Sam Appleton takes on a classic this weekend

By Bahrain Endurance 13

Sam Appleton returns to Olympic distance racing at St. Anthony’s Triathlon thisweekend and is ready for some fast and furious action at the long-running event in Clearwater, Florida.

“I am really excited to race this weekend,” he says. “I have never done it before but it’s a classic race that always draws a bolstered field.”

St. Anthony’s Triathlon is in its 33rd year. Held at the start of the USA racing season, it has always attracted a top-notch field of Olympic distance non-drafting specialists with its $30,000 total prize purse paid out eight deep.

Appleton raced on the ITU circuit for two seasons before pursuing university studies and migrating toward long-course racing.

“I haven’t raced an Olympic distance in a few years but I come from an ITU background so hopefully that holds me in good stead this weekend. It should be a ripper.”
