(Elysian, MN - July 11, 2009) Approximately 300 athletes participated in the 26th annual Elysian Triathlon on Saturday. The men's podium was filled by two of Minnesota's most prolific racers--North Mankato's Todd Landgraff (1st) and Red Wing's Jesse Nelson (2nd)--and Minneapolis' Tom Morgan (3rd), whose wife April finished 2nd in the women's race behind Stacy Dees of Western Springs, IL. Nineteen-year-old Iowan Grace Moore took 3rd.

The win was Landgraff's second of the season. He was also victorious at North Mankato on June 28.
