BARBADIAN Oein Josiah defied the odds to win a gold medal at the recent duathlon in Trinidad and Tobago.

Competing with an injury, Joseph finished first in his age group but was fourth overall.

Describing the race as bitter sweet, Josiah said it turned out to be “an encapsulated reality check”.

“I crossed the line in fourth position overall, thereby qualifying for an automatic first place in my age group. Every race is unique so I always compete with an open mind, and expect anything and everything to happen,” he said.

Despite his performance however, the athlete who finished second to Jamaica’s Phillip McCatty at this year’s national triathlon, said he was nursing two injuries. (RA)
