It's time to shine the spotlight on a different sport at Valdosta State... How about the Triathalon? VSU students organized a group which competes in Regional events... They call themselves the Tri-Blazers and 3 of their athletes placed inside the Top 100 at the Conference Championships this past weekend.
Austin Pruneda, President of Triathalon Club says:
"With us being a 1st year club we really are relaxed and it's just kind of trying to get people's feet wet into the sport."
Riki Otaki, who completed his first ever Triathalon, says:
"It's really fun to be on a rider bike. It feels like you're going so fast and I was excited to swim in the lake because it's an open water swim. We went off the dock and went around."
