Race #3 in the Stroke & Stride Aquathlon Race Series was a qualifying event for 2020 Multisport Worlds – which are going to be held in Almere, Netherlands next September – and it was also the site of the Triathlon Ontario Aquathlon Championships.
As a result of his 4th place finish, Gabe qualified and will be competing alongside his teammate Juan at Worlds, and Serena finished 1st in the W19U (womens 19&under) category becoming Age Group Provincial Aquathlon Champ. Awesome work!
With the Stroke & Stride series held in the shallow and warm waters of Gulliver’s Lake (Safari Rd, Hamilton), its also the ideal venue for those who are new to open water swimming and multisport events. After having already raced in Race #1 jTOEST Junior athlete Landyn took the opportunity to race again in the series finale. Landyn took 40secs off his time from Race #1 (20:24) to finish in 19:44 for the 300m swim and 3k run and placed 2nd overall.
With open water swimming being a brand new experience for Landyn this year the successes are piling up one on top of another showcasing what proper progressive training leads to. Well done Landyn.
