Flying the flag: Bermudian Libby Brewin, having qualified to represent Britain, finished eighth in the female 30-34 division of the World Triathlon Sprint and Relay Championships in Montreal

Three Bermudian triathletes were in action across various age divisions in two different races over the weekend.

Nicole Mitchell and Jennifer Wilson headed Stateside to compete in the Ironman 70.3 Virginia event consisting of a 1.2-mile swim at Carvins Cove, followed by a 56-mile cycle through the hilly counties of Botetourt and Buchanan, and half-marathon through the city of Roanoke in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Competing in the 35-39 age group, Mitchell completed the swim in 33min 3sec, the bike discipline in 3hr 3min 45sec and finished off with 1:49:32 half-marathon for a total elapsed time of 5:33:14 and highly respectable seventh place. Cheyenne Noble won the race in 5:15:17.

Mitchell’s performance also saw her finish 23rd out of 393 female competitors and 208th out the total 1,544 athletes competing.

There was also a strong display from Wilson in the 45-49 age group. She clocked 41:23 on the swim, 3:31:08 on the bike and finished the run in 2:14:33 for 32nd place in a total time of 6:36:45.

Elsewhere, Libby Brewin was in action at the World Triathlon Sprint and Relay Championships in Montreal.

Having qualified to represent Britain, Bermudian-born Brewin competed in the 30-34 age group. She exited the water from the 750-metre swim in 11:22, clocked 33:59 on the 20-kilometre run and completed the 5km run in 21:15 for an impressive eighth-place finish overall in 1:12:37, slightly more than six minutes adrift of winner Michelle Stratton.
