Team Bahamas travels to Key Biscayne.

A TEAM of 17 athletes represented the Bahamas in three events in the inaugural Caribbean Triathlon and Duathlon Age Group Championships at Key Biscayne, Florida, on May 15.

Competing against triathletes from, Aruba, Barbados, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Jamaica, St Kitts & Nevis, St Maarten, Trinidad & Tobago and the Virgin Islands, the Bahamas team came away with 16 podium finishes including 11 first places.

The international distance race started things off with a 0.5 mile swim, 24.8 mile bike course and then a 6.2 mile run to the finish line. The sprint distance event, which covers half of the swim and run distances plus a 10-mile bike ride shortly followed the duathlon race of run, bike and run. There was Bahamian representation in all three events. “A special congratulations to Bahamas Triathlon Association for not only fielding the biggest team but for flying their country colours with the most pride,” said Scott-Fricks, the event director.

Dorian Roach, president of the Bahamas Triathlon Association (BTA), said they are immensely proud of the 17 dedicated athletes who made the trip to represent our country and came away with such exceptional results. “After forming less than a year ago, the BTA is excited about our future prospects of competing on an international scale. We would like to thank our sponsors Think Simple, and we are looking for more companies to support us in developing and promoting the sport of triathlon here in the Bahamas,” Roach said.
