MORE THAN 50 world-class athletes are headed to Barbados to compete in the Bridgetown Camtri Sprint Triathlon American Cup on Sunday.
Local triathletes Matthew Wright, Oein Josiah, Jason Wilson and Amy Cox will be vying for the top spot in both the overall race and group races in their respective categories. Athletes from Brazil, Cuba, Syria, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Cayman Islands, United States and Canada will converge on the Spring Garden Highway to complete the course which includes a 750-metres swim at Brandons Beach, a bike course of four kilometres (five laps) beginning at the entrance to the Coast Guard and ending just after Massy Distribution, and a two and a half-kilometre run (two loops) on the same course. Darren Treasure, president of the Barbados Federation of Island Triathletes, said he was expecting nothing but great things from the Barbadians. (RA)
