DR wins three gold medals in pentathlon championships

The Dominican Republic carried off three gold medals and a silver at the UIPM Biathle-Triathle National Tour held 15-16 July in Havana, Cuba. Some 160 athletes from different countries participated at the event.

The Dominican standouts were Ana Leidys Arias Macias, who achieved two gold medals (one in Triathle—swimming, running and shooting—in the Senior Division) and another in Biathle (swimming and running) in the same division. Katherine Garrido Espinosa won a gold and a silver medal in the Biathle Junior category.

Other countries that performed well in these events included Mexico, the United States, Cuba, Spain and Canada.

This event serves as a warm-up for Dominican athletes who are preparing for the Central American and Caribbean Games to be held next year in Barranquilla, Colombia and the Panamerican Games in Lima, Perú, in 2019.
