Congratulations to our very own Jonathan Thompson of Grade 9, a 2017 Caribbean Triathlon Champion!
The 2017 Caribbean Triathlon and Duathlon Championships was recently held in Miami, Florida where top male and female athletes in each age group participated in three different events: Duathlon, Sprint Triathlon and Standard Triathlon. Athletes came from Barbados, Grenada, Jamaica, Bahamas, St. Marten, St. Vincent, Aruba, Cuba, Haiti, U.S. Virgin and Trinidad and Tobago.
Jonathan Thompson, a first-time triathlete who began triathlon training 10 months ago flew the T T flag high. Jonathan battled choppy seas in the swim and strong head winds on the ride and a challenging course in the run to prove that hard work and discipline pays off as he finished 1st in his age group 16-17 and came 6th place overall in the Sprint category in a time of 1 hour. Fantastic race Jono! Congratulations from your Maple Leaf family! We are extremely proud of you.
