The 7th annual Nevis Triathlon held on March 15 was a great success. 108 competitors from 16 countries participated in the event hosted by the Nevis Cycle and Triathlon Club.

The Olympic Distance Male category saw Edgardo Velez of Puerto Rico come in first, Rafael Colon, also of Puerto Rico, a close second and Reggie Douglas, of Nevis, third.

Among the women, Janine Herweijer from the Netherlands was first, Kristina Stoney of Nevis second and Jayme Goldberg of the USA followed in third place.

Third place winner Jayme Goldberg of Plymouth Meeting, PA is a past Ironman participant. She and her husband, Andrew, were guests at Nisbet Plantation during the event.

In addition to placing third in the Olympic Distance Male category for the 2009 Nevis Triathlon, Nevis resident Reggie Douglas won the 2009 OECS (Organization of Eastern Caribbean States) Olympic Distance Triathlon. This is his 4th time winning this event!
