Bermuda triathlete Tyler Smith claimed a medal at the Central America and Caribbean Championships in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, on Saturday [May 13].

Smith finished the sprint-distance race – 750-metre swim, 20-kilometre bike and 5km run – in 50min 08sec. His splits were 8:42, 25:35 and 14:26.

“I went all in to give myself a chance at the overall win, but the cushion I built up on the bike evaporated as I followed the lead moto the wrong way into T2 [transition two],” Smith wrote on Instagram.

“Realistically, the gap wouldn’t have been enough to hold off most of the top runners anyway. Still, it’s been a pleasure to be able to represent Bermuda in our regional championships in the Caribbean.”

The race was also part of the Americas Triathlon Cup in which Smith finished tenth overall.
