|As predicted the National Duathlon Championships did not disappoint.
Over 100 athletes took part in last Sunday’s National Duathlon Championships, racing in either the Standard (10k run, 40k bike, 5k run) Sprint Distance (5k run, 20k bike and 2.5k run) or the Dash Distance (2.5krun, 7.5kbike, 500m run). The race which took place at the Queen’s Park Savannah, saw reigning National Duathlon Champions Jenna Ross and Jason Constelloe retain their crowns in the Standard Distance, thrilling the large crowd of spectators.
The men’s race was as exciting as it can get, with defending champion Jason Costelloe hot on the heels of eventual 2nd place winner Gavyn Nero in the 10k run.
Costelloe overtook Nero on the bike leg of the race, clinching victory in a winning time of 1:52:37.
In the women’s race, defending champion Jenna Ross dominated the field from the start, winning in a definitive time of 2:09:20.
In the juniors (16-19yrs), Hayden Reid and Rachel Grosberg were crowned the Junior male and female Junior Duathlon Champion respectively.
The Dash event was won by Linford Blackwood in the male category and Kirsten St. Omer in the female category.
The next TTTF hosted event will be the Secondary and Primary Schools Triathlon Championships to be held at the Aquatic Centre in Couva on the 13th and 14th May respectively.
