Kids compete in iCan Tri youth triathlon

FRESNO, Calif.

The awards ceremony for the first annual "iCan Tri" youth triathlon at the Clovis North Educational Center.

About 170 kids, ages 6 to 17, competed in the three activities - swimming, biking, and running.

The lengths of each event were different based on age groups.

Organizers say it was a great turnout for this inaugural competition.

"We had seasoned triathletes come from different part of California to this venue to race and we had a lot of first timers so it was a great mix of newbies and experienced triathletes," iCan Junior Triathlon Club founder Todd Waldner said.

"It was great, I felt really good at everything I did," Chloe Waldner said.

The event also had a water zone to help keep the athletes cool and it started early Sunday morning, before temperatures climbed into the triple digits.
