Despite the ever-increasing presence of younger and better-trained athletes, 29-year-old Scott Molina, one of the grand-daddies of triathlon, made it known Sunday that he is not yet ready to yield. Molina--who, as one of the sport's "Big Four," has been a dominant factor since 1982--won his fourth San Diego Bud Light Triathlon in 1 hour 49 minutes 2 seconds. But while Molina proved that at least one of triathlon's pioneers can still be a force, the other story was the emergence of two newcomers.

While the format of Sunday's 32.2-mile Nike Horny Toad Triterium was a change for the sport of triathlon, one constant remained: The best are still the best. Scott Molina, the 1985 Ultrasport Athlete of the Year, and four-time world champion Mark Allen, both from Del Mar, finished one-two in the first triathlon to feature multiple-lap segments as opposed to the traditional out-and-back format. But not without the help of an unexpected twist.

Ask Rick Wells about his swimming ability and he will answer vaguely that he was once something called a "national representative" in his native New Zealand. Ask Scott Molina, the triathlete who before Sunday had won each of the five Long Beach and Orange County U.S. Triathlon Series events held, and you will get an altogether different answer. "The guy's a fish," said Molina, who finished second to Wells in the USTS Orange County biathlon Sunday at Doheny Beach State Park.

In retrospect, Scott Molina of Boulder, Colo., didn't think it was a good decision for him to compete Sunday in the Orange County Performing Arts Center Triathlon at Mission Viejo. Molina flew in from Dallas Saturday night, where he had just finished fourth in a triathlon that morning and was attempting his second race in 24 hours, a rare occurence for triathletes. Of course, after winning the men's competition by 19 seconds, he wasn't about to complain over the results.
