Australian triathlete and PROJECT clothing ambassador, Ryan Bailie has finished fifth in his Commonwealth Games debut in Glasgow and anchored the Australian mixed relay team to a bronze medal!
Bailie, 24, was the first Australian across the line on Thursday 24 July 2014 in the men’s individual race around Strathclyde Park in Glasgow.
“It was epic out there. I left everything out on the course,” Bailie said afterwards. Two days later, Ryan ensured Australia’s claim to bronze in the Mixed Team triathlon race on Day 3 of Competition (Saturday 26 July 2014).
The combined team event consisted of two men and two women from each country, competing in a ‘super-sprint’ triathlon before tagging their next teammate. Bailie teamed with fellow Australians Emma Moffatt, Emma Jackson and Aaron Royle in an enthralling race.
“I don’t know where I pulled it from, but I just kept pushing, and managed to do it,” Bailie said afterwards, having crossed just metres in front of Canada’s Andrew Yorke in fourth.
PROJECT clothing couldn’t be happier for Ryan ‘The Flash’ Bailie and we’re looking forward to supporting Ryan as he returns to the ITU World Series for the Grand Final in Edmonton, Canada on August 31. For a full race report on Ryan’s performance visit Sam Maxwell Sports Management.
