It was the thrill of victory and lots of fun at the Clark Lake Yacht Club this morning. The Kids Triathlon began with the swim, followed by the bike ride, and then, the run. Seventeen kids, 12 and under, competed for the gold, bronze and silver medals. Below, Event Director Dan Omo explains to participants how the Triathlon works. Continue to watch to see the kids swim.
After the swim, the kids raced to their bikes. The cycle course took them to Eagle Point and back.
The kids then ditched their bikes and finished the Triathlon on the run course.
And the winners are:
Gold – Ben Oneil
Silver – Ella Stovall
Bronze – Andrew Russel
Also participating (in alphabetical order): Lili Kate Eason, Kellen Hughes, Scarlett Hughes, Nathan Ketke, Katie Kretzinger, Katelyn Melling, Maddy Mulder, Natalie Oneil, Jackson Pierse, Logan Shelton, Rory Shelton, Denny Stovall, Link Stovall, and Gabby Zimmer.
To add to the fun, the Yacht Club invited kids of all ages to enjoy the giant blow-ups–and there were good things to eat. And some came to watch the competition and take in a stunningly beautiful day at Clark Lake.
An event like this doesn’t happen on its own. It takes work! Combining efforts were the Raft-O-Rama Committee and the Clark Lake Yacht Club. Some of the people who made it happened are pictured below.
