TRAC has positive outlook in 2019

THE Triathlon Association of the CNMI has positive outlook in 2019.

The increasing number of participants in their events over the year gives TRAC a glimpse of a brighter year ahead, said its president Ricky Castro.

“We have a good outlook in 2019 for our potential triathletes in the CNMI,” said Castro who led the other TRAC officers in distributing free bicycles to the young aspiring athletes over the weekend at the Kilili Beach pavilion.

Castro said that as has been their plan all along, they will continue to reach out to youth who want to try triathletes as the sports of their choice.

This year, Castro said, “if we identify youth who have potential to become a triathlete we will be ready to help and train them.”

 “Hopefully our generous sponsors will continue their support,” he said.

The distribution of bicycles was part of TRAC’s development program.

Those who received bicycles at the Kilili Beach pavilion were Isaiah Aleksenko, Andrei Chavez, Aoi Braxton, Simon Shan, Isaiah He and Tania Tan.

Aside from holding its out events like the duathlon series every year, TRAC also help organize other signature events on island like the Marianas Visitor Authorities’ Tagaman Triathlon that will be held in March.
