Riptides swimmers Sean and Neo, along with the Coho’s Mackenzie, braved a freezing cold morning to compete in the Alberta Summer Games trials for triathlon at the University of Calgary.
There were two spots available to represent Big Country Zone 2 at the upcoming games in Lethbridge.
After a quick 300m swim, the boys transitioned to the 9.2 km bike ride around the campus, and finished with a 3 km run.
Neo raced to a silver medal and the top qualifying spot for Big Country. He was chasing Johnny, a fast swimmer from the Cochrane Comets, who took the gold.
Mackenzie later qualified for the Summer Games triathlon team at the Alberta Provincial Triathlon Champs.
