The third annual Boldt Triathlon, hosted by Lawrence University, took place on the morning of Saturday, Sept. 24. The triathlon is one of many intramural athletic competitions offered by Lawrence University.
The triathlon was comprised of three legs: 300 yards of swimming, 4.5 miles of cycling, and 1.6 miles of running. The swimming was held in the Buchanon Kiewit Wellness Center pool.
The cycling took competitors off campus, past the Banta Bowl and through Telulah Park. The running leg took place on a two-lap course around the sidewalks of campus.
The event included a men’s, a women’s, and a team division. There were 11 individual competitors, eight men and three women. Three teams competed, in total including seven additional athletes. The winning team, “TRI-n-Catch me,” was comprised of junior Lou Weissert and senior Tatiyana Jenkins. They completed the course in 31:26.25. Freshman Celine Stichert won the women’s division, in 42:19.11. Sophomores Theo Ardem and Jason Lau tied for first place in the men’s division, finishing in 32:29.36. The top three competitors in each division were awarded a medal printed on Lawrence’s 3D printer.
The Boldt Triathlon will again be held in spring term.
