San Jose del Cabo was buzzing last Sunday! The triathlon really shook things up with streets packed and traffic crawling. Picture this: over 1,300 athletes from a whopping 46 different countries! They were all there, splashing, pedaling, and dashing their way through the morning. You could feel the energy in the air — so much determination and grit all around.
Now, I know the traffic situation might have been a bit of a headache for locals trying to get their Sunday errands done, but guess what? The event was a gold mine for the city! The city treasurer was all smiles, talking about the $4 million in revenue it brought in. Not too shabby, right?
And hey, let’s throw some confetti for the winners! Paula Findlay from Canada absolutely crushed it in the women’s category, clocking in at 4 hours, 9 minutes, and a solid 50 seconds. As for the gents, Jason West from the USA snagged the top spot with an impressive 3 hours, 43 minutes, and 4 seconds on the clock. Hats off to them! That’s some serious athleticism right there. Congrats to Paula and Jason!
