Keiki Triathlon: The Beginning of a Triathlete's Journey

About 85 Kindergarten through Grade 5 HPA students took part in a day of swimming, biking, and running as part of the school's annual Keiki Triathlon.

The event, held October 1 at the Upper Campus, was organized by Lower School Physical Education teacher Betsy Tranquilli as the culmination of a five-week "Triathlon Training" unit. During physical education class time, students learned about the importance of exercise and training, how to build endurance, how to eat properly to support endurance work, and practiced the proper techniques of swimming and running for distance.

The event also featured a special appearance by HPA senior Malcolm Davis, who recently represented Team USA in the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, where he placed 8th in the 18-19-year-old age group. Davis participated in the Lower School Keiki Triathlon himself as an elementary student and encouraged the students to keep pursuing their goals in swimming, biking, and running.

Congratulations to all the K-5 participants.
