The Barbados Federation of Island Triathletes has announced a 13 member team to fly the Bajan flag high at Clearwater Beach in Bermuda for the 4th instalment of the 2022 CARIFTA Triathlon, Aquathlon and Mixed Team Relay Championships on September 24th and 25th.
Barbados is one of 29 federations invited from the Caribbean region to compete for the first time after a two-year hiatus from the championships due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Some familiar faces will be returning to the championships in the 13-15 category, such as young veterans Luke McIntyre – a double gold medalist at the last CARIFTA, and Fynn Armstrong, a first-place finisher in the Under-17 3000m at the 2022 Track & Field CARIFTA Games, is team captain.
The CARIFTA championships will see three events taking place over two days – the Triathlon (swim, bike, and run), the Aquathlon (swim and run), and the Mixed Team Relay Championships – with the athletes divided into four age-group categories, 11-12, 13-15, 16-19 and 20-21.
