The Massy Rainbow Cup 2016 was the year of the comeback as far as the results in the Olympic distance triathlon go.
 
Canadian Jackson Laundry bettered his runner's-up finish from last year while T&T’s Jenna Ross did the same in the women's Olympic distance event.
 
As racers, professional, recreational and in between splashed into the waters at the scenic Turtle Beach Heritage Park in Tobago, it was easy to get lost in the beauty of the waters, but from then the race course took them on a completely different direction
 
The rolling hills of Black Rock, near the Grafton Beach Resort presented quite a challenge for both the cycling aspect as well as the run.
 
But after 2 hours and 42 seconds flat, Canada’s Jackson Laundry, last year's runner-up topped the class, over countryman Garrick Loewen who was 2nd and last year's winner, Clement Briere from Martinique.
 
Among the ladies, Jenna Ross of Trinidad and Tobago was able to better her 4th place finish from a year ago, completing in a time of 2 hours 33 minutes 3 seconds to hold off Canada’s Nina Sieh and Alex Bovell, the sister of Olympic swimmer, George.
 
Laundry also doubled as men's 5k champion while the women's race was won by T&T’s Samantha Shukla.
