Congrats to Gung Ho! Bros. John O’Loghlen & Jade Gray for successfully finishing the 2012 Beijing International Triathlon.
The event consisted of a 1.5km swim across the picturesque Qing Long Lake, followed by a massive 40km bike race to Qian Ling Mountain and back, capped off with a 10km run!
The Gung Ho! Bros are certainly no strangers to athletics; both John and Jade have been involved in athletics from an early age. John O’Loghlen is a very accomplished rower, having rowed for Harvard and Cambridge, as well as the New Zealand National team. Even more impressive, John ran an unbelievable 100km at the ultra marathon in Hong Kong last year! His experience certainly paid off at the Beijing Triathlon – John finished second in his age group!
Jade Gray is also a sport-lover. He played rugby all through high school and university, and made it into the Canterbury Under-17’s side – New Zealand’s most successful rugby team! Even his first job in China was as a ski instructor! Jade’s triathlon performance was also impressive. Despite an old knee injury, he completed the swim and bike races, and managed to complete the 10km run on crutches!
Congratulations again John and Jade! Nice work!
