Out of 11 countries competing at last weekend’s 2nd staging of the CARIFTATriathlon & Aquathlon Championships, Trinidad & Tobago placed 3rd overall despite

challenging race conditions. Due to rough seas and high swells, the swim was cancelled from the 11-12 and 13-15 Aquathlon events, which converted them to

run races and the 750m swim for the16-19 triathlon was shorted to a 500m swim.  Guadeloupe was the clear winner of the championships with Bermuda and Trinidad & Tobago in 2nd and 3rd places respectively, with Barbados following in 4th place.

During the closing remarks of the Team Awards Presentation on Sunday 30th September 2018, the TTTF  took the time to recognise Mr. Ian Gooding, past President, vice President, creator of Rainbow Warriors Triathlon Club (RWTC), the Rainbow Cup event, Coach to his son Jason Gooding, and driver of all things triathlon.  TTTF President, Paul Hee Houng called upon Jason Gooding, Race Director for the CARIFTA championships to say a few words about his father. Jason Gooding urged the junior athletes present from the Caribbean to appreciate their parents as they are their greatest supporters. Triathlon stalwart Diane Henderson gave a few words about working with Ian Gooding and his contribution to the development of the sport and a plaque was presented to Jason Gooding on behalf of his father which read…”The TTTF gives its Heartfelt Appreciation to Mr. Ian Gooding for your dedicated and unfailing service to the development of Triathlon and Multisport in Trinidad and Tobago 2018″. Ian Gooding has been battling cancer in recent months and the Federation wishes him well.
