The Bahamas Triathlon Association (BTA) was formed in the 1980's and has been dormant for a number of years. It became active again since 2015 and from that time we focused on the development of the sports in the country. We want to expose the World to our triathlons and our Triathletes to the world. There are currently between six and eight events a year throughout The Bahamas.
The association is open to all ages regardless of experience, background or ability. We are an inclusive and welcoming, supporting beginners through their first triathlon alongside more experienced athletes - many members have gone onto represent the Bahamas in international age group races, IronMan, Caribbean and CARIFTA Championships.
Bahamas Triathlon Association hosts National Championships
The Bahamas Triathlon Association was able to put on its national championships despite inclement weather at Jaws Beach on Sunday. Armando Moss was the overall men’s winner and punched his ticket to Birmingham, England, for the 22nd Commonwealth Games this summer.
The national championships also served to provide junior athletes with an opportunity to qualify for CARIFTA. The team will be ratified later.
President of the BTA, Dorian Roach, said the championships was good as the weather held up.
