KNOXVILLE -- Lebanons Kimbel Lea won her age division (25-29) of the third annual Anchor Splash Sprint Triathlon, presented by Performance Therapeutics, Sunday, Sept. 18 on the University of Tennessee Campus.

Consisting of a swim of 300 yards in the Student Aquatic Center Pool, a six-mile bike ride and three-mile run, Lea, 25, finished with a time of 1:06:54.

This was my first triathlon, so I wasnt sure how to train, Lea said. My goal was finishing in 65 minutes, so I was a little behind that time.

A 2004 graduate of Lebanon High, she qualified for the TSSAA Spring Fling in both the long jump and triple jump as a junior and a senior. She attended Tennessee Tech on a track scholarship before completing her education at UT-Knoxville in 2009.

Heres the breakdown on the three legs of the event. 300 yard swim 7:08; Transition 2:11; six-mile bike 29:35; Transition 0:40; 3 Mile Run - 27:22.
