Linde-Elmhurst Takes Lead While Young Locks Up Series Early
– New Youth Club Championships to be last stop in 12-13 Division –
August 17, 2016 – The Orillia KOS race this past Saturday was the fourth of five stops on the 2016 Triathlon Ontario Youth Cup Series for 12 and 13 year olds. The rain stopped just long enough to allow the Youth Cup race to take place.
In the girls race, Nadiya Linde-Elmhurst made it three in a row as she took the victory and sits atop of the standings with 75 points from three races. Linde-Elmhurst currently has a nine point lead over the next two competitors, Hannah Fraser and Sarah Gillis who both sit at 66 points. The Series final standings will come down to the final race in this best four of five results, being hosted by the Recharge with Milk MultiSport Canada Lakeside KOS – also serving as the first ever Youth Club Championships in September.
On the boys side, Ian Young also made it three in a row in the Series. With Young’s second place in the Series opener he now has locked up the Cup Series victory with one race left to go. His name will be engraved on the trophy like his older sister Emma’s was last year. Congratulations Ian, well done!
