Triathlon Gdańsk for Kids 2019 was held without any problems, this year. Bartek Boryna (15 yo) TriTalentTeam representative, took part in the Youth category (ages 14-17) at the distance: 300 m swimming – 3600 m cycling – 2000 m running. He was one of the youngest in his category, racing with boys even 2 years older than him.
Swimming in the sea is a difficult discipline. The waves challenge your swimming technique and you just have to fight. So did Bartek. Although he drank some sea water, he finished swimming on the 8th position.
After a quick transition, he jumped on a bike and finished cycling as the 3rd (with the 1st cycling time).
From this point it was enough to keep this position to reach the podium.
He fought until the last meters, but was overtaken just before the finish. He summarized today’s competition: “I need to get better at finishing”. Congratulations, Bartek! The fourth place in the Youth category is an excellent result.
