More than 120 children, aged from 3 to 15 converged on Clearwater Beach in St Davidís to take part in the Clarien Iron Kids Triathlon event.

In the 7-to-10 Racing Bike category, Harris Fleming took the top honours in a time of 15 min 02 sec, narrowly ahead of Jacob Wright, who finished in 15:07 and Jamie MacFarlane in 15:24.

In the 11-to-15 Racing Bike category, Tommy Marshall and Zoe Hasselkuss were crowned the male and female champions respectively.

Marshall crossed the finish line in a time of 22:52, with Hasselkuss finishing shortly after in 26:09.

Liana Medeiros finished third overall, and the second female in 26:14, with Enshe-Nico Davis, the second male and fourth overall finisher in 26:15.

Daria Desmond was the third female finisher and fifth overall in a time of 26:39, while Rory Fleming crossed the finish line in 27:08, as the third male finisher and sixth overall.

Having begun in 1988 as a Gibbons Company event held at Shelly Bay Beach, the triathlon is now hosted by Clarien Bank and is a community-driven event giving the nationís youth the opportunity to compete in a traditional swim, bike and run junior triathlon.

The event consists of two parts, the Junior Triathlon for children aged 7 to 15 and the Tiny Tots race for children aged 3 to 6.

Former Iron Kids participants include Flora Duffy and Tyler Butterfield, who both continue to represent Bermuda as professional triathletes.
