Glasgow-bound Perchard opens with classy display
Perchard made it across the line in just over an hour (1.02.48) to take the top spot in the sprint triathlon, while Brad Rose finished strong to win the introductory triathlon event in 23 min 47 sec.
In the sprint event, experienced distance swimmer John Legge exited the water in first place, with Perchard close behind.
It was not long, however, before Perchard put clear time between himself and the other triathletes, showing his class on the way to finishing almost four minutes ahead of the field.
Full report and full list of timings in Wednesday's JEP.
