Kukich ran 3 miles on the treadmill in 23:58, covered 15 miles on the stationary cycle in 38:20, and swam 500 yards (20 laps) in the pool in 10:11. Her total time of 1:12:29 placed her 22nd overall out of 53 competitors. She was the 5th female finisher overall and would have come in either first or second in all the other female age groups except the 20-29s! She finished more than 20 minutes ahead of the second-place finisher in her age group. Wow.
