Duke seeks payback in Subic
Dimity Lee Duke hopes to ride on the momentum of her recent victory, but in a different course setup, in search of redemption as she gears up for a fierce duel with Guam’s Manami Iijima and Laura Wood of New Zealand in the second Black Arrow Express 5150 set Sunday in Subic Bay.
Duke failed to match Iijima’s strong performance in the opening swim leg and came up short in her rally in the bike and run stages and settled for second in last year’s inaugurals of the event disputed over the Olympic distance of 1.5k swim-40K bike-10K run.
She won the first Penong’s 5150 reduced to a duathlon event last July.
