Three triathletes are competing in the World Championships in Chicago this Saturday.
Samuel Young, Kendall Ebanks and Justine Plenkiewicz are the intrepid athletes entering the Olympic distance of a 1,500-meter swim, 40K bike and 10K run.
The 2015 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final and World Championships will see 150 of the world’s top Olympic-distance triathletes competing with the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games on their minds. In addition to the elite races, the event features top-flight sprint and Olympic-distance races for age-group athletes, para-triathletes, juniors and under-23s, as well as an aquathlon to kick off the action.
In all, more than 6,500 of the world’s best triathletes will compete for world titles over four days of competition.
The Cayman trio are going more for the experience than to be top finishers. Young and Ebanks have ambitions of being champions one day, though.
Young said, “I want to thank Paula Smith, Corey Smith and Wendy Clarke for their support.”
