The Bermuda Triathlon Association today announced the names of the 29 athletes chosen to take part in the 5th annual Carifta Triathlon, Aquathlon and Mixed Team Relay Championship scheduled to be held in Nassau, Bahamas this weekend.

Male and female athletes will compete in 11-12, 13-15, 16-19 and 20-21 age groups with draft legal triathlon events being held on Saturday 26th and Aquathlon [Swim/Run] and Mixed Team Relay events taking place on Sunday 27th.

Steve Petty, President of the Bermuda Triathlon Association wished the team well, “Triathlon in Bermuda is thriving and it is a testament to our youth program that we are able to choose such a large and talented pool of athletes for Carifta.

“Last year Bermuda won nine individual medals along with the team silver award when the event was held in Bermuda. We are hopeful that we can achieve similar success again this weekend in the Bahamas. I would like extend my gratitude to all those who have supported our team in particular our sponsors, Appleby and Price Forbes.”

Neil de ste Croix, Junior National Coach, commented, “This Bermuda team has worked incredibly hard in training in the lead up to CARIFTA. We have organised two dedicated training camps including one with a top coach from the United States and we have seen progression in all of our athletes throughout this summer.

“For some of our team, this is the first time they have raced overseas but we also have a number of more experienced triathletes who have achieved podium finishes in international races. I am excited to see all of them race this weekend and show off their strength and skills.”

Charlotte Parkinson will act as Team Manager and Clive Langley will aid the team as Assistant Coach for the competition.
