The UCF Tri-Knights Triathlon Club competed in four major events during the 2011-2012 school year.
With over 17 individuals competing during each race, Tri-Knights came out on top at every event. In their very first event, Tri-Knights had five people make the top six finishers for their respective events. Their final event was an Olympic Distance Triathlon that took place in Port St. Lucie, Florida. The club had 5 individuals in the top twenty for a 1.5 mile swim, 40 mile bike ride, and a 10 mile run. Thanks to their hard work, the Tri-Knights received over $3,000 in sponsorships. They did not just rely on their sponsors however. The club fundraised over $1,000 by working at various fundraising events. They also raised $2400 via dues for their club, helping Tri-Knights receive the opportunity to compete at a collegiate level in their sport.
Congratulations to the UCF Tri-Knights Triathlon Club!!
