Canada Games Team Competes in Virginia!

Newfoundland’s Junior Triathlon Team performed well at the USAT Richmond Youth Elite & Junior Elite Cup in Virginia this past weekend.

The NL team consists of Heidi Perry & Nikolas Dolomount from Corner Brook, Ethan Piercey & Dylan Morawski from Gander, and Marcy Whelan & Laura Pittman from St. John’s. These young athletes, who will be representing the province at the Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg this August, went head-to-head with the best junior triathletes in the US.

With both Ethan & Heidi in the top half of the finishers and the others close behind despite two bike crashes and a flat tire, they now have their sights set on Winnipeg.

Their next race will be the Canadian Junior Series in Victoriaville, QC on July 1st where they will finalize their preparations for Winnipeg. Congrats to the team and Coach Christiane Martin and good luck in Quebec!
