More than 600 athletes convened at Long Beach in Sag Harbor on Sunday for the Mighty Hamptons Triathlon, which will be named moving forward for the late Steve Tarpinian, a pioneer triathlete on Long Island who helped keep the event alive when he and his Event Power company took it over from Southampton Hospital in 1993.

Alexander Libin, 25, of New York was the overall winner of the event, posting a record time of 1:52:56 over the course of a 1.5K swim, a 40K bike and 10K run. The previous course record was 1:55;33

Shawn Faurot, 36 of New York was second in 2:05:40, while Steven Quinn, 32, was third in 2:05:47.

The top local finishers were David Powers, 48 of East Hampton, who finished 11th overall with a time of 2:12:20, and John Broich, 54, of Sag Harbor, who was 21st with a time of 2:125:54.
