A five-member squad left Antigua and Barbuda earlier today to compete in the CARIFTA Aquathlon and Triathlon Championship in Jamaica.
The tournament, now in its third year, is set to begin this weekend in St. Ann.
Yahnik Martin, Molijah Williams, Ethan Stubbs-Green, Eliot Stubbs-Green and Aoife [EFF-EE] Smith were selected.
The team is coached by Ian Simon.
Ten countries are expected to compete in this year’s event — Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, Barbados, Bermuda, the Bahamas, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, and the US Virgin Islands, with over 150 participants expected from the 10 teams.
Those participating countries will be seeking to topple the defending champions, Guadeloupe.
