Escape from Alcatraz
American Olympians Andy Potts and Sarah Haskins were crowned champions at Sunday’s Escape from Alcatraz in San Francisco, Calif. The historic race, which celebrated its 34th year, features a 1.5-mile swim, 18-mile bike, 8-mile run course, beginning in the waters just outside of the famed Alcatraz Island.

Potts (Colorado Springs, Colo.) picked up his sixth win, propelled to the front of the pack early on when he posted the best swim time of the day. He held off a speedy Bevan Docherty from New Zealand to take the tape in 2:04:21. Docherty finished in 2:04:59 and Josh Amberger of Australia was third in 2:08:37.

Competing at Alcatraz was a first for Haskins (Clermont, Fla.), but her win on Sunday marks her sixth-straight win of the 2014 season. Haskins came out of the water with Sara McLarty (Clermont, Fla.) with a gap of more than a minute on the rest of the field. She then threw down the fastest bike split to give herself a solid lead on the field heading into the run, and finishing in 2:17:42. Australian Mirinda Carfrae was second in 2:18:05 and Germany’s Ricarda Lisk was third in 2:18:52.
