All the best pictures as athletes brave the elements to complete Dublin City Triathlon

Can you spot yourself?

CLOSE TO ONE thousand athletes were forced to endure miserable weather conditions on Sunday as the Dublin City Triathlon took place in the capital.

If the taxing course wasn’t enough to withstand, driving wind and rain throughout the day made conditions difficult for both the amateur and professional athletes taking part in the race.

Hot on the heels of the inaugural staging of Ironman Dublin 70.3 a couple of weeks ago, Sunday was another great success for a sport which continues to go from strength to strength in Ireland.

Russell White claimed his first national title in a time of 1:59:31 while Limerick’s Carolyn Hayes won the women’s race to retain the crown she won twelve months ago.
