8:42 am on 22 February 2009

Andrea Hewitt and Kris Gemmell were victorious at the Takapuna Round of the Contact Tri Series triathlon.

Hewitt won from a fast-finishing Sam Warriner and Gemmell out sprinted France's Laurent Vidal and young star Ryan Sissons of Auckland.

The world number two triathlete Bevan Docherty was a late and reluctant withdrawal.
