Brazilian professional triathlete Felipe Bastos claimed his second win of the season – and first ever State Games title – in Alpine, AL, the Triathlon host city for the 2008 Alabama Games. The win, in a record setting time of 59:03, marked Bastos’ 29th overall career win. “I pushed my body the entire time – I really wanted the State Games title,” said Bastos.
The result came just one week after Bastos’ 2nd place at the Buster Britton Triathlon, an event that saw 14 seconds separate the winner from second place. “Last week came up 14 second short of the win, and I did not want it happening again today,” said Bastos when explaining his performance over the 400yd/25k/5k distances. Bastos led the race wire to wire and recorded the first sub hour performance on the hilly race course.
