FacebookDiggTwitter

The Avery family of the UK have found a dear bond through triathlon. Dr. Avery Gordon (pictured below) is today's oldest competitor at age 79. He shares the race course with his two sons, James and William. Dr. Gordon and his wife Penny moved from the UK to Nevis where Dr. Gordon teaches Epidemiology to local students.

Live with French actor Paul Belmondo

FacebookDiggTwitter

Today, we caught up with Star Events Ambassador, famous French actor and former Formula One driver Paul Belmondo as he arrived into Nevis this morning.

A frequent visitor to the Caribbean for 30 years, Paul was eager to race in Nevis for the first time in TriStar 33.3. In fact, this will be his first race outside of Monaco!

"With TriStar, I always know the locations and options are among the best in the world. When you can combine sport with triathlon and bring the entire family, it becomes a really special social experience," said Paul.

When asked about the TriStar race course, Paul advised participants to "take it easy and very slow especially in the heat." Combined with lush nature, colorful buildings and wildlife that can appear on course at any given moment, the Nevis bike and run course will challenge the best of the field.

We look forward to seeing Paul's results tomorrow as he looks to use this race as a training for TriStar Cannes at the end of April.

PRO triathlete John Hirsch wasn't kidding when he said, "This week I've found Nevis to be one of the friendliest and most supportive communities I've ever visited."

The Nevis community has shown an outstanding level of support for TriStar Nevis and visiting athletes. Race day is in good hands because of their efforts.

Today, the finishing touches were placed around town.

TriStar launches the 2012 race season in Nevis after a week of entertainment and fun

FacebookDiggTwitter

The “Queen of Caribes,” Nevis island, is staged for the first TriStar race of the season Saturday, March 31, 2012. TriStar 111 and 33.3 individual and relay races return to the island after an inaugural launch in March 2011. Designed to offer a destination filled with sports, recreation and fun, TriStar Nevis opened the week with a sold out StarMile, a 2.5 mile channel swim from St. Kitts to Nevis. Daily, professional triathlon coach Shaun Green of UK based Green Coaching worked with athletes during custom training sessions in water and on land to offer participants a better understanding of the challenge to follow on race day.

Mid-week brought the return of the Pink Lily charity 5K, walk/run from Four Seasons Resort to Pinney’s Beach. The jubilant crowd attracted a mix of local Nevisians, resort visitors, cancer supporters and cancer survivors. And for many visiting TriStar athletes like World Champion Olivier Marceau, Amy Kloner, John Hirsch and Christine Lynch, the charity 5K brought the chance to learn more about the island, the people and the spirit of the Caribbean.

“This week, I’ve found Nevis to be one of the friendliest and most supportive communities I’ve ever visited,” said PRO John Hirsch. “The Pink Lily 5K gave me and others the opportunity to engage sport with important charity efforts.” “I participated in the StarMile 2.5 Cross Channel swim on Sunday which was extremely tough but everything worth doing is!  It was a good starting point for my personal race preparation and it launched the week of TriStar activities superbly.  To have such a good event on the first weekend, activities throughout the week and a choice of race distances the second week, TriStar Nevis is a perfect place to kick start your season,” said Shaun Green, professional coach.

Approaching race day with a warm forecast of 84 degrees, TriStar Nevis welcomes athletes from over thirteen countries ages 15 - 79. The roster will see representation from Antigua, Barbados, France, Netherlands, South Africa, UK, USA and more. New in 2012, PRO athletes will compete for a $10,000 PRO cash purse. Male PROs include World Champion Olivier Marceau (Switzerland) who took second to Chris McCormick last year, James Weeks (St. Kitts & Nevis), John Hirsch (USA), Reginald “Reggie” Douglas (St. Kitts & Nevis) and Kellen Hood (USA). The female PRO field is represented by Amy Kloner (USA) and Lauren Wassner.

French actor and former Formula One driver Paul Bermondo is racing TriStar Nevis for the first time and looking forward to a great pre-season warm-up before his appearance in TriStar Cannes in April. “His advice for athletes tomorrow? “Do your best and take pleasure.” According to PRO triathlete John Hirsch, “I consider the Nevis course one of the most challenging, but importantly, inspiring.”

The official TriStar Nevis start will take place at 8:15 AM in Gallows Bay. Updates and Live Coverage on www.TriStarLive.com
