European Triathlon Championship bronze medalist Alexander Bozhilov defended his title from the previous two races and won the gold medal at the national championship.
A total of 158 people took part in the last competition of the year from the state calendar of the Bulgarian Triathlon Association, which was held over the weekend in partnership with the Municipality of Burgas.
The center of the event was the Northern beach, the cycling took place along the alley towards Sarafovo district, and the running along Pomoriyska street.
In order to protect each and every participant, the “Crisis Situations and Violations Committee” decided to cancel the swimming segment for all age groups, due to the weather conditions reported at that time – thus the competition was held in a “duathlon” format.
In the men’s +19 age group, Borislav Palashev from SKP “Palashev” Pazardzhik finished in second place after Alexander Bozhilov /SKPST “Kosmos” Sofia/. The bronze was won by Boris Andreev from SKT “Three Team” Sofia.
In the women’s +19 final, the gold medal was won by Anastasia Peycheva from SKT “Palashev” Pazardzhik, the silver was won by Mevsin Mahmudova from SK “Triathlon-Dalyan” Ruse.
The bronze was won by Evelina Zlatanova from SKT “Three Team” Varna.
Competitors from 13 clubs of the Bulgarian Triathlon Association took part in the state championship, and in the team classification, the results placed SC “Triathlet” – Banya in first place, SKT “Palashev” – Pazardzhik in second and third, and SKPTS “Cosmos” in third – Sofia.
