McNeill teen places in triathlon

Liam Aoki placed second in the Sun Rype Fraser Valley Triathlon

Health issues prevented Port McNeill teen Liam Aoki from competing in several early season triathlons this year. He made up for it in a big way Sunday in Langley by placing second in the boy’s 12-13-year-old class of the Sun Rype Fraser Valley Triathlon.

Aoki lowered his previous best swim time by 28 seconds while posting an overall time of 33 minutes, 57 seconds for the 200-metre swim, nine-km bike and 2.5-km run.

The division, which included 15 competitors, was won by Noah Landry of Delta in 30:14.

Liam thanks his sponsor Willie Mitchell for the advice and support, including swim instruction through the Willie Mitchell Classic Fund. He also dedicated the race to his Opa, who is battling cancer, said his father, Jeff Aoki.
