First up on Day 4 of Trinbago 2023, the Triathlon Mixed Relay took place at Buccoo Beach in Tobago, with Jessica Heeps and Alex Robin teaming up together to try and add another medal to their individual silvers.
Up first was Alex, who swam a strong swim and was close to the leader from Jersey and kept in the front pack in the bike ride. After three laps of the run, Alex was sitting in second place as he tapped in Jessica to compete the second phase of the race. As a strong swimmer, Jessica closed the gap between first and second and was in a very strong position going into the bike race. After a tough run in the heat and humidity, Jess ran a great circuit to take home the Silver Medal, alongside Alex.
Making it’s debut at Trinbago 2023, Triathlon has been a fantastic success for our Scottish triathlon athletes and they have cemented themselves in the history books of Commonwealth Youth Games.
