First Prev 1 2 3 4 Next Last

Bermuda triathletes Erica Hawley and Tyler Smith produced encouraging performances at the Pan American Triathlon Confederation Junior Elite North American Championships in Florida at the weekend.

Competing in the 16-19 age group, Smith, who suffered the misfortune in the first transition of his bike being moved from its original position, finished 57th in 59min 42sec, while Hawley came 39th in the same category for females in 1hr 6min 57sec.

Meanwhile, in England, Megan Berry was sixteenth overall in the Sidmouth Aquathlon, which featured a 600-metre pool swim and an outdoor five-kilometre run.

The Exeter University student, who has only recently taken up triathlon, completed the swim in a time of 9:03, the run in 21:57, including transition, for an overall time of 31 minutes. She was the fourth female overall and third in the 19-39 age group.

Tyler Butterfield's season gets under way this weekend at the Abu Dhabi International Triathlon against a stellar field that includes Frederick van Lierde, a former Ironman world champion. Butterfield was third at last year's event.
