IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR AT TOKIO MILLENNIUM TRIATHLON

Bermuda’s triathletes braved the wet and windy weather to turn out for the Tokio Millennium Triathlon today, Sunday 8th June, 2014.

As expected Tyler Butterfield led from start to finish posting the fastest swim, bike and run times. However, not to be upstaged by husband Tyler,Nikki Butterfield showed why she was once the World Under 23 Triathlon Champion by finishing 1st female, in convincing fashion, and 7th overall.

Junior Tyler Smith showed that, at least over the sprint distances, he is now clearly Bermuda’s 2nd fastest triathlete. With Butterfield not in Bermuda for the National Triathlon Sprint Championships on June 29th, Smith could well become national sprint triathlon champion in three weeks time ; if he can pull it off it will be a remarkable achievement at such a young age.

Commonwealth Games bound Jonathan Herring and Tucker Murphy rounded out the top four finishers whilst defending champion Karen Smith was 2nd female.
