Sabahan Cyclist Got Gold in Triathlon

Laura Avila Adrian, proud to say she's a Convent, as in went to SMK St. Francis Convent (M), Kota Kinabalu. =) Not only she's a genius, she's a sportswoman as well!

She got gold and silver in the Sarawak International Triathlon 2010 in Miri last Sunday! She competed in the Women's Under-20 category and came in first in the sprint event, thus the gold and silver was for the Olympic distance.

"The last time I competed in a triathlon event was three years ago at the same meet. I didn't expect to do so well as I know that my time in the swimming event is not so good and to finish second in the Olympic distance behind a world class athlete who is ranked in the top 25 is way beyond my expectation," she said.

Her next triathlon would be in Brunei but it's not confirmed yet. Her younger brother, Laurel, from Maktab Sabah (holly crap they have their own website!), got third in the Men's Under-20 sprint category and 11th in the Men's 16-29 category. Not bad, this is remarkable, what the siblings did!







Shine on,
Del
