Barbados had plenty of female power at the 25th Barbados National Triathlon Championships held at Spring Garden over the weekend.

The host country finished one-three in the women’s Olympic distance triathlon with Elisa Whitehouse leading the way and Jennifer Wosminity, taking third place.

Francky Favre from France captured the men’s equivalent. The affable Frenchman who provided some entertainment every time that he passed the officials’ area, held off a strong challenge from Philip McCatty of Jamaica and Gregory Austin from Barbados.

Both Trinidad and Tobago and Grenada were well represented among the 103 competitors who came from 15 countries to take part in the swim, cycle and run events. The men's sprint triathlon saw top local performer Oein Josiah having to settle for third behind winner Matthew Chung and Joshua Ho, both of T&T.

Swimmer Akeem Nurse, cyclist Russell Elcock and runner Pierre Stanford piloted TMR to the top spot in the corporate triathlon relay which attracted 15 teams. Second was the trio of Nicholas Hall, Reginald Jones and Carlie Pipe while third were Stanley Brooker, Luke Staffner and Charel Lehners. (MK)
