On the pro side of competition, Sarah Haskins continued her Chicago win streak with her fourth victory in Chicago with a time of 2:00:37.

Fresh off an impressive Olympic effort, Hunter Kemper won the male professional division at 1:48:51.

If you need a little day after inspiration, check out the video below, it’s a a few years old, but should bring back a few memories of another great year at the Chicago Triathlon.

Congratulations to everyone who made it across the finish line, including Chicagonow food blogger Joe Campagna- The Chicago Food Snob, who finished his first Chicago Triathlon.
