Dye top male pro in Life Time Tri


Special to the Miami Herald

Early Sunday morning, the beach was lined with nearly 3,000 pro, elite and first-time athletes for the start of the the 2014 Life Time Tri South Beach.

Many of the top U.S. triathletes from National Training Centers in Boulder, Colo., and Clermont in Central Florida competed in the event.

Making it to the finish line first was Cameron Dye, 30, of Boulder, who won the male professional division in 1:51.56. Dye finished the 1.5-kilometer swim in 20:54. Once out of the water, he transitioned to the 40K bike leg of the triathlon. Dye finished the cycling portion in 53:31.26 with an average speed of 27.2 mph. He then finished that last leg of the race, a 10K run, in 34:02.64.

Sarah Haskins, 33, of Clermont won the female professional division in 2:01.59.

In the male professional division, Greg Bennett, 42, of Boulder, finished second in 1:53.29, followed by third-place finisher Michael Poole, 23, of Tampa, in 1:54.00.

In the female professional division, Helle Frederiksen, 33, of Clermont, finished second in 2:02.34, and Alicia Kaye, of Clermont, finished third with a time of 2:05.08.

Forty-five professional triathletes participated in the event, which offered a $30,000 prize purse.

In the elite division, Andrew Mueller, 24, of Martinsville, Ind., finished in 2:03:50.72 to finish nearly three minutes faster than second-place finisher Jonathan Fecik, 26, of Lancaster, Pa. Aubrey Cook, 28, of Boulder took the top spot in the female elite division in 2:18:08.14.

The event kicked off the 2014 Life Time Tri Series and raised a record $435,000 in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The Life Time Tri South Beach continued a six-year tradition of benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in its efforts to lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.

“St. Jude Heroes,” or those who committed to raise funds and “tri” for the kids of St. Jude, raised funds to help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.

  • Fishing report

    Captain Pete Rapps of Captain Rapps’ Charters and Guides out of Chokoloskee reported snook are feeding on a good moving outgoing tide around the outside barrier islands. Live baits such as the pilchards, pinfish and threadfin herring and the DOA Terrorize soft plastics have been producing some of the best snook bites. Sea trout are feeding over grass in 3-5 feet of water. The redfish have been feeding along the oyster bars on the incoming tides. Popping corks with shrimp or pilchards have been getting a lot of the redfish strikes. Big tarpon are still around, holding in the open outside bays and flats, and have been feeding best during early mornings. Live baits such as small ladyfish, large threadfin herring, pinfish and mullet have been getting the most tarpon strikes.

    In My Opinion

    Outdoors feature: St. Lucie County artificial reef dazzles divers

    This 60-foot dive had all the hallmarks of a coddled, shallow multispecies tour of Disney World’s “Living Seas” aquarium: a cornucopia of marine life ranging from small colorful tropical fish to what scientists like to call “charismatic megafauna” — really big fish.
