Ross wins again

She was one of three athletes from Rhodes who tested their limits against more than 3 000 competitors at Queens Wharf in Auckland, New Zealand, last Monday. Ross finished 39th overall in the 20-24 age group category in a time of 2 hours, 37 minutes and 31 seconds. She swam the 1.5km swim in 31:34, cycled 40km in 1:17:08 and ran the last leg of the race, a 10km run, in 41.39.
