Wiltonian Comes in First for Women's NYC Triathlon

Amy Bevilacqua came in first place and finished 25th overall in Saturday's NYC triathlon.

Wilton resident Amy Bevilacqua was the first woman to cross the finish line during the New York City Triathlon this Saturday, Bloomberg News reports.

Bevilacqua, 39, crossed the finish line at two hours and four seconds, according to the Connecticut Post's AP report.

The grueling test of physical endurance included a “1.5-kilometer (0.93 mile) swim in the Hudson River, followed by a 40-kilometer bike ride along the Henry Hudson Parkway and a 10-kilometer run” according to Bloomberg news.

Jordan Jones, 31, of Colorado, won the NYC Triathlon at 1 hour, 45 minutes and four seconds, according to the the Conn. Post.

Bevilacqua finished in the 25th spot overall this year; last year, she had placed third in the women’s triathlon race, according to Bloomberg News.

Over 3,300 people ran, swam, and biked the event to the finish line, according to Bloomberg News.
