Port Hope native Dominika Jamnicky placed 10th in the Elite Women’s category at the World Triathlon Cup in Huatulco, Mexico on Saturday.
Jamnicky, a 2010 graduate from the former Cobourg District Collegiate Institute West high school now living in Guelph, finished the spring distances of a 750 metre swim, 20 kilometre bike and and 5 kilometre run in 1 hour 01 minute 21 seconds.
The race was won by Denmark’s Alberte Kjær Pedersen in 1:00:24. Jamnicky was the second Canadian to finish behind Amelie Kretz, who played fifth in 1:00:57.
“I’ve had some tough luck and equipment issues the past few races so it was nice to finish (Saturday)’s World Cup with a result that reflected the work I’ve put in,” Jamnicky wrote to Total Sports Northumberland. “The goal is to keep the momentum from this weekend into summer racing.”
Jamnicky, who has trained and competed recently in Florida, expects her summer schedule to include races in Canada and Europe.
Past highlights for Jamnicky include competed at multiple world championships as well as the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia, where she was born.
