Although describing it as a “humbling experience”, Vernon’s Nathan Champness still claimed third place overall and earned a berth at the 2015 world long distance triathlon championships on Sunday.

Champness, competing as a 30-34 age group athlete among male and female elites, completed the Subaru Vancouver Triathlon (1.9 kilometre swim, 90 km bike and 20 km run) on Sunday in four hours 10 minute 35 seconds (4:10:35).

He trailed only male elites Andrew Russell of Victoria (3:55:21) and Nathan Killam of Vancouver (4:06:28) in the overall standings and finished first in his age group in what doubled as a national long distance triathlon championship.
