HAWLEY CRASHES BUT GETS UP TO FINISH AT YOUTH OLYMPIC GAMES

YOG TRIATHLON 2014 FEMALE RESULTS

Erica Hawley did herself and Bermuda proud as she finished the Youth Olympic GamesTriathlon despite crashing on the bike in the wet and windy conditions. Evidently a few girls went down. Despite suffering the crash and road rash Erica finished 29th out of 32 finishers. 

Team manager Karen Smith reported :

 

Today,Erica had an excellent swim and was right in the mix coming out in 21st.  She had a crash on the first lap of the bike  as the roads were wet and slippery and the back wheel gave way. Like a true champion she jumped backed on and rode in the next pack. She had a fast run and  finished very strongly. Everyone is super proud of her ! The crash was disappointing and it gave her some road rash but she will be ready for revenge at the relay event.
