Smith Makes Continental Cup Podium in Americas Triathlon Cup

Tyler Smith made it to the podium competing in the 2023 Americas Triathlon Cup and Central America and Caribbean Championships in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

Smith was 10th overall clocking a time of 50:08, but he would finish on the podium in the Continental Cup competition.

Smith clocked a time of 8:42 over the 750m Swim distance, he would then complete the 20 km Bike Course in a time of 25:35, before closing out with a 5K Run time of 14:26.

Following the race, Smith said, “Nice to get on the podium, for the Caribbean and Central American Champs in Punta Cana 🇩🇴. Our ‘race within the race’ at the Continental Cup provided an extra boost of motivation during an otherwise frustrating day.

I went all in to give myself a chance at the overall win, but the cushion I built up on the bike evaporated as I followed the lead moto the wrong way into T2. Realistically the gap wouldn’t have been enough to hold off most of the top runners anyway. Still, it’s been a pleasure to be able to represent Bermuda in our regional championships and to be back racing in the Caribbean."
