Triathlon trio excels

Local athletes in strong triathlon performances at Comox event.

Port Hardy’s Jaylon Grenier took home a bronze medal and the father-daughter tandem of Scott and Madyson Harris each posted top-seven finishes last weekend in the annual Comox Valley Shoreline Orthodontics Tri-K Triathlon.

Grenier, 13, finished third among 15 finishers in the 12-17-year-old boys division, covering the “mini” race distance of a 300-metre swim, 10K bike and 3K run in 42 minutes, 31 seconds. Grenier was fifth after the opening swim stage and steadily moved up, finishing third in both the cycling and running stages.

Madyson Harris, competing in the girls 10-11 division, placed sixth in a time of 30:06 for the 150-metre swim, 5K bike and 2K run. Sitting in 11th place following the swim, Harris made a big late push, posting the fastest transition time between the bike and the run and then finishing third in the running stage.

Scott Harris, 45, placed seventh overall in the 40-49 men’s individual sprint race (750-metre swim, 20K bike, 5K run), in 1:12:34. Harris had his highest placing in the swim, finishing fourth, but finished no lower than seventh in any event.
