Belizean triathletes and Ambergris Caye natives, Kian Trejo and brothers Brandon and Jordan Santos will be traveling later this month to Huatulco, Mexico, to compete in Olympics qualifiers being held by World Triathlon on Sunday, June 13, along with their coach Kent "Bob" Gabourel.
The trio will compete with about 70 other participants from around the world in sprint distance triathlon race that includes 750 meter swim, a 20K ride and then a 5K run. Kian Trejo said that the competition in Huatulco, Mexico will be fierce, with tough finish times to compete, but the trio has been training hard and is optimistic about their performance.
Trejo commented that the three of them are working on hitting their personal best records in preparation for the event. Their times are just a few minutes over an hour and anything under an hour in the event is a qualification tome for the Olympics. They remain positive that with their continued, dedicated training and tactical skills they will perform well at the event.Click here to read the rest of the article in the Ambergris Today
