Triathlete Erica Hawley Finishes 29th In China

August 17, 2014

Bermuda’s first competitor in the 2014 Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China, was triathlete Erica Hawley, who finished 29th overall during the 750m swim, 20K bike and 5K run in a time of 1:08:14.

Hawley had an excellent swim and was right in the mix coming out in 21st with a time of 10:43. Unfortunately, she had a crash on the first lap of the bike as the roads were wet and slippery, however she still managed to clock a time of 34:35, which she then followed with a run time of 21:37.g.

Chef-de-Mission Katura Horton-Perinchief said, “Could not be more proud of Triathlete Hawley today! She had a strong start and was near the middle of the pack after the swim. After a nasty spill on the bike could’ve taken her completely out of the race, she hopped back on the bike and finished with an impeccable time in the 5K run.”
