Rosete-Torres on winning streak


Special to the Miami Herald

Triathlete Yunior Rosete-Torres is on a winning streak.

On Sunday, Rosete-Torres continued to push past the pack to finish first overall in the Mack Cycle Triathlon Trilogy Number One at Historic Virginia Key Beach on Key Biscayne.

He finished the International distance in a split time of 10:06 in the swim, 39:49 in the bike and 33:59 in the run for a total time of 1:24:47.16. The win is his second first-place finish in a row, as he also finished first in the Miami Man: Speedway Edition on May 25.

On May 5, he finish second in the same distance to Santiago Ascenco in the 2014 Mack Cycle Tri-Miami International Triathlon. Since that race a month ago, Rosete-Torres has improved his time by nearly two minutes.

Alice Henley was second place overall in the International distance and won the female division. Henley finished the .5-mile swim in 14:00, the 20-mile bike in 48:04 and concluded the race by finishing the run in 38:12 for a time of 1:42:30.

The Trilogy No. 2 will continue on July 20.


Fort Lauderdale’s Steve Lobue continues to make his mark in the world of cliff diving

This past weekend he joined 19 of the world’s top divers in Fort Worth, Texas. On Saturday, they dived from “Hell’s Gate” in Possum Kingdom Lake during the second stop of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series.

Lobue finished third out of the 12 men and seven women who dived into the freshwater reservoir from 90 feet and 60 feet, respectively, from platforms temporarily constructed on the cliff face.

The divers reached speeds of 53 mph in just three seconds before entering the water, protected by nothing but their bathing suits.

Approximately 6,700 spectators arrived by boat to watch the athletes during the series’ first-ever stop in Texas.

Lobue will head to Serpent’s Lair in Ireland as he tries to make his way into the championship of Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series.

The tour continues through Norway, Portugal and Spain and concludes with a coronation in Brazil at the end of October.

  • 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.
