After two events of the Atlantic Primary School Multisport series Bishop Anstey Junior School is leading comfortably with 3195points in front of St Andrews (2695 points) and Dunross (2675 points). While either of St Andrews and Dunross will have to put out an extrodinary result at the Triathlon on July5th they will be in direct contention for second place.
The second event on May 24th, the Atlantic Primary School Duathlon Championships saw a total of over 100 Athletes from as many as 20 schools from all over the country. Overwhelmed by the fast pace of growth the organizers started the first race about 20 minutes late which is as you know unusual much for TTTF-Events.
The Race was integrated in the Sunday morning “Keep Moving” activities on the Diego Martin Highway. Atlantic has taken the lead in grabbing the Titel-Sponsorship while Blue Waters, now the official Provider of Bottled Water has made sure that the children will stay hydrated. Vemco was represented with Gatorade, V8 and YoGo’s.
