Middlesex Swimming would like to share some exciting news with all of our members and pass along our congratulations to one of our athletes Rowan Wick for his great performance a couple of weekends ago at the 2021 Triathlon Ontario Provincial Championships held on Saturday, September 4th in Welland, Ontario.
As part of the Balance Point Triathlon Youth Development Team, Rowan Wick participated in the U15 event. The event was a modified Aquathon format instead of a traditional Triathlon which consists of a swim leg, bike leg, and then finally a run leg. The Aquathon that Rowan completed consisted of a 1.5km run, followed by a 300m open water swim, and finished with another 1.5km run.
This Ontario Provincial Championships was a selection event for the 2022 Ontario Summer Games Triathlon held next year in Mississauga, Ontario. Rowan was able to finish in 11th place overall and therefore qualified himself for the Ontario Summer Games next July 2022 in the Triathlon!!!
