On Sunday 12th June 2022, Marlborough College Malaysia was abuzz with activity as the MCM Triathlon returned to the College. With over 180 athletes competing across the six categories in both teams and individual events.
The first wave of competitors was the Year 3 – Year 4 category. After a quick width of the pool, the pupils dashed through to the bike transition where they had to quickly don a top, a helmet, and a pair of shoes before running with their bike to the start of the bicycle leg around a section of the Marlborough Mile. This was then followed by a speedy bike drop-off and helmet removal before the competitors began the final leg of the race, the run. The individual event was swiftly followed by the team event, which was an exciting affair with different competitors completing separate legs of the race. Next was the Year 5 – Year 6 category, followed by the Year 7 – Year 8 category. After a short break, it was the turn of the Senior pupils, in the Shell – Remove, Hundred to Upper Sixth, and finally the Open competition which was open to staff and parents.
The atmosphere around the course was incredible as spectators and competitors alike cheered and encouraged each other. It was wonderful to see everyone out in force either participating or supporting. A triumphant return to the MCM Triathlon.
