Albert Wins First Ever Triathlon ({{commentsTotal}})

Veteran Estonian triathlete Marko Albert has picked up his first ever win in the event, beating the competition in Ironman New Zealand on the weekend.

Albert, 34, beat second place Cameron Brown, a local, by 4 minutes and 22 seconds with a time of 6 hours and 17 minutes, and the last podium place also went to a New Zealander.

The 3.86 kilometer swimming leg of the tournament was won by Albert, who finished the course in 46 minutes. He was also fastest in the 180 kilometer cycling event with a time of 4 hours and 36 minutes, and second fastest in the last leg, the 42 kilometer run, with a time of 2 hours and 50 minutes.

The result was the second fastest ever in the competition, and the first time a athlete from Europe had won in New Zealand in 14 years.

Albert's previous best came in 2011 at the Hawai Ironman, when he finished 13th with a time of 8 hours and 35 minutes.
