Senior Carol Jean Vosburgh of Tryon experienced her first double win at the Middle Tyger Triathlon, June 3 in Duncan, S.C. She not only won her 70-74 year old age group, she received the award for being the oldest participant. There was a 60-year age difference between the youngest and oldest, with minimal time difference. The first portion was a pool swim, followed by a 15-mile bike race and a 5K partial cross country run. Carol Jean is motivated to inspire and encourage other seniors to get out there and do all they can while they can. (photos submitted Carol Jean Vosburgh)
