The Tacoma father-daughter triathlon team of Doug and Alycia Hill earned top four finishes at the world championships Monday, Sept. 1, in Edmonton.
Alycia Hill, a Bellarmine Prep graduate, finished fourth in the women’s 25-29 age group at the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final. Her time of 2 hours, 11 minutes, 54 seconds was 2:10 behind the winner, American Robin Pomeroy.
The performance earned Alycia Hill, who spent most of the year battling a leg injury, her Pro card, her dad said via email.
Doug Hill missed winning the 60-64 world championship by less than a minute. He finished second in 2:15:37, 58 seconds behind fellow American Paul Clark.
Never miss a local story.
The Hills seemed happy with their times despite competing in cold weather.
“The weather was bitter cold,” Doug Hill said via email. “No sun and it even sprinkled a bit. It's no mystery why their pro football team is called the Edmonton Eskimos.”
