Competition Triathlon 169 Anniversary of the Navy (Sans Souci) Sprint Distance, Holy Sunday, 2013.

By Kester Edwards

In general the team had a very good performance. Event due to poor sea conditions, this wonderful event had an excellent organization and made our special athletes in the Sprint Duathlon finish the distance very well and within their means of demonstrating good level of skills developed in training. I think in general the performance was of great help in these special conditions where the athlete's first objective was to seeks integration into society and take part in competitions of this kind looking to better their quality of life. The Sprint Triathlon and Sprint Duathlon took place on Saturday April 20, 2013, at 8:30 am. Athletes in the Triathlon Sprint, Duathlon Sprint were: 1. Pablo Ortega. 2. Alex Sanchez. 3. Franklin Market. 4. Dimarys Vasquez. 5. Carlos Romero. Coach: Arnold Aguilera Fernandez. Recommendations given to participants were as follows: 1. Continue this noble cause with the support of institutions, family and friends. 2. Try to participate in national and international events of this level.
