Dr Philmore Benjamin has been re-elected as President of the Antigua & Barbuda Triathlon Association (ABTA) and will serve or the next four years.
Benjamin was unopposed in his bid for a second consecutive term and was elected alongside Cleofoster Harris who was chosen as vice president, Khandi Jones as secretary, Joanne Small as assistant Secretary, Raymond Dogen as treasurer, and Latricia Mussington as assistant treasurer.
Newly appointed Public Relations Officer (PRO) and former national athlete, Cordova “Popeye” Simon, admitting the organisation had been next to dormant for the last four years, promised a change in the way things are done.
“We are looking at a way of recruiting young triathletes and we are planning on getting the whole triathlon club structure together. What has happened over the years there haven’t really been much triathlons or you may have a swim club, a cycling club or athletics club that we all join forces and so we are looking at a way forward in terms of a club,” he said.
The association, Simon added, will also be hoping to forge a relationship with other sporting disciplines as they seek to grow the sport of triathlon.
“As a triathlon association, if you don’t work with cyclists, if you don’t work with athletics and if you don’t work with swimming, then you are not getting anywhere because those are the three key sports that make a triathlon team or group so we must work hand in hand,” the PRO said.
Efforts to reach Benjamin for comment proved futile.
