Team Nevis Taking on the World!
The members of the Nevis Cycle & Triathlon Club, welcomed Sarah Petre-Mears back form her epic journey to New York, where she had completed the Marathon, her first, in a grand time of 5hrs 22 mins. What is remarkable is that Sarah only started running 18months ago, in this short space of time she has learnt how to run, ride a bike and to swim, she had already completed a half marathon in Anguilla last November and entered and won her first mini-triathlon earlier this year, going on to complete her first sprint triathlon in March. A credit and an inspiration to all those people that think sport is not for them, Sarah has recently signed up to race her first Half-Ironman (70.3) triathlon in St Croix in 2007 and firmly intends to compete as an olympic distance athlete at the nevis event in March 2007. i would not bet against her!!!
Another member making the news is Jesica Geist (Ross) who will be competing in the Half-Ironman (70.3) Triathlon world championships in Florida on the 11th November, after she qualified for a spot in this years St Croix 70.3 event. We wish her all the best and look forward to hearing about her adventures shortly.
