2014 Ontario Youth Cup Series Makes First Stop at Guelph KOS®

June 7, 2014 – This past weekend’s Guelph Lake KOS® was the first stop in the expanded 2014 edition of the Triathlon Ontario Youth Cup Series. The start time was pushed back approximately an hour due to cooler temperatures but that didn’t cool down some blazing times put in by our competitors.

Boys  14-15

Liam Donnelly took a Series lead with 25 points from his 1 min. 28 sec. victory over second place finisher Kyle Caie.  Donnelly came out of the water in 7th place, 1:28 behind leader Will Stewart who had a swim time of 5:40 over the 400m swim course.  Donnelly made up ground over the technical 10km bike course posting the fastest bike split of the day averaging 35.9km/hr.  He also posted the fastest 4km run time of the day averaging 3:43/km to solidify his victory.

Girls  14-15

Sara Borrens put on a dominating performance on Sunday in Guelph, winning by nearly 3 minutes over the rest of the field.  Borrens and a group of five other girls came out of the water within 12 seconds of each other, but she began to put the pack behind her with a blistering bike split (5th fastest overall bike split).  Coming into T2 Borrens had over a minute lead over Emilie Tremblay and extended it even more on the run leg to comfortably take the first race in this year’s Series.

Boys  12-13

In the newly added age division Ian Young took the Series lead with a strong bike and run leg after coming out of the water in 5th place.  Young had the fastest bike and run splits amongst the field to win by 1:10 over Liam Yoell.

Girls  12-13

It was a brother-sister win in the 12-13 age category on Sunday with Emma Young matching her brother, winning in comfortable fashion by just over 2 minutes over Emma Lazenby.  Young was a second behind first place out of the water and T1, then never looked back after posting the fastest bike and run splits in the division.
