Molly Roohi thrives in annual 3Sport Triathlon

For the second consecutive year, Molly Roohi ruled the west Richmond street-sides and became the top women’s finisher in the annual 3Sports Triathlon,  proving that she is one of the fastest triathletes in the state.

The 30-year old King George resident finished with an overall time of 58.23. After trailing Richmond resident Renee Kunnen by four seconds in the swim portion, Roohi passed Kunnen by 28 seconds in the bike event. She later extended her lead over Kunnen by 1-minute and 23 seconds to win the triathlon.

The triathlon featured a 300-meter swim, or six laps in the Shady Grove YMCA indoor pool, a 20K bike race and a 5K run through the streets of Glen Allen. 354 athletes participated from around the country to compete in the yearly event.

Roohi is a perennial endurance champion, who recently won the Pohanka Nissan Hyundai YMCA Colonial Beach Sprint Triathlon. Last year, after an undefeated season, she was rated first overall in women’s

runners for the Fredericksburg Area Running Club. In addition to having run 17 marathons, Roohi is also an assistant triathlon coach for UcanDoIt Coaching Group, founded by fellow triathlete, Debi Bernardes.

Bernardes finished third overall with a time of 1:00.00. Prior to the race, Bernardes finished fourth overall in 2010, and second overall in 2009.  Jean Wright from King George placed second in her age group (50-54) with a time of 1:15.50.

As for the men, 21-year old Grayson Cobb from Blacksburg was the top male finisher with a time of 50.30. Last year’s male winner, and Richmond resident, Michael Harlow, finished the event in 50.09.

King George resident Max Bernardes was the area’s top male finisher with a time of 59.22. He finished second in his age group (20-24), and 21st overall. Craig Cantrell, also from King George finished 31st overall with a time of 1:01.15.
