Belizean Sidney Turton, Jr. places 3rd in Bay Island Triathlon

The Belize National Triathlon Association would like to congratulate Sidney Turton, Jr. who placed 3rd in his first race representing Belize regionally. The race was held on February 16 in Roatan, Honduras.

Sidney Turton, Jr. and Eric Donis will be representing Belize in the upcoming Central American Games on March 9 in Costa Rica.

Giovanni Alamilla President Belize National Triathlon Association

(Ed. Note: Congrats to Sidney, Jr. from the sports desk! It is the first time we are hearing of him, so we asked Giovanni for some background information on Sidney. His reply: “Sidney is a 17-year-old Belizean who lives in Belize City and is a student at Belize High School. His parents are Karla Turton and Sidney Turton, Sr., both Belizeans. He has participated in a number of our smaller races. Because of his age, he was not allowed to partake in the Lionman.”)
