Second place went to Debbie Parsons of Waterloo. Parsons lead out of the water, but Kirstie showcased her talents once the first run commenced. Helen Butt of Scarborough claimed third overall.

Glen Oomen of Toronto dominated the men's race from start to finish. Oomen was solid the whole race, breaking the tape almost four minutes ahead of Jay Dunkerley of Guelph. Dunkerley used his incredible footspeed to come from behind and claim second overall. Philip Wiebe of Kincardine was sixth overall after the first loop, but came on very strong at the end to grab third overall.

In an incredible duel for top prize, Christina Briante of Guleph proved stronger on the day over Danielle McKibbon of Tecumseh. Briante and McKibbon battled the whole way, and exchanged the lead several times. Briante gapped McKibbon four hundred meters from the finish and ran home strong for a well deserved victory. Allison Drynan of Guelph used her phenomenal footspeed to claim third overall.

The men's race was a showdown between James Loaring of Windsor, Eric Fernando of Michigan, and Tony Smucler of St. Clair Beach. All three emerged from the water in unison. Fernando held a slim lead off the bike, but was caught by Loaring on the run. Loaring held a slim lead heading into the final run, but then increased his lead to the finish. Fernando held strong to hold off Smucler for second overall.

(375m swim/10k bike/2.5k run) x2

Victory in the women's field was claimed by Kirstie Kniaziew. Kirstie flawlessly demonstrated her outstanding world-class talent in leading the race from start to finish. Throughout her career, Kirstie has achieved more international success than just about any female triathlete in Canada. National Team Triathlete, Blaire Kniaziew of Leamington, ON, finished second. Grabbing the final podium spot was National Team Triathlete Danielle McKibbon of Tecumseh, ON.

There was a dogfight for victory in the men's field. National Team Triathlete James Loaring used his home-court advantage to break the tape first, only seventeen seconds ahead of Glen Oomen of Guelph, ON. The pair were within seconds the whole race, finishing the first super sprint in the same time. Glen used his potential Olympic-bound swim talent to pull away from James in the second swim. It wasn't until the final quarter mile of the run that James was able to reel Glen in and surge for the finish. Third place was claimed by Randy Walker.

Somebody said that it couldn't be done,
But he with a chuckle replied
That "maybe it couldn't", but he would be one
Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.

So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.
