By April 17, 2019

Triathlete Llori Sharpe leaves Jamaica on Friday, April 19, for the CAMTRI Elite Sprint Triathlon Championships on Sunday, April 21 in Bridgetown, Barbados.

Sharpe is ranked 23rd of the 51 female triathletes in the Continent of the Americas and plans to use Sunday’s championships to climb further up the rankings.

“This is another elite race that I am definitely looking forward to because not only am I racing against some of the top triathletes from around the world, I also have an opportunity to improve my ranking in the Americas region, so I am definitely looking to performing well,” said Sharpe, who is ranked 23rd in the Caribbean, fourth in the Caribbean and first in the English-speaking Caribbean.

Sharpe said she does not believe the course will pose any real challenges.

“The course is familiar as I have done the race already, I did it last year and so I shouldn’t have too many issues getting my way around it. I am just looking for a good race, some good competition and a good result.”
