Ex-Harvard Swimmer Parker Wins Women’s New York City Triathlon

July 15 (Bloomberg) -- Former Harvard University swimmer Jenna Parker was the top female finisher at the New York City Triathlon, where Jordan Jones won his second straight men’s title by almost two minutes.

Jones, a 31-year-old professional triathlete from Golden, Colorado, completed the course in a time of 1 hour, 49 minutes and five seconds. Kyle Leto of Boulder, Colorado, was second among more than 3,000 participants in 1:50:55, followed by Dan McIntosh of Westminster, Colorado, in 1:52:13.

The 13th Olympic distance New York City Triathlon began with 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 that finished in Central Park.

Parker, a 26-year-old pro from Santa Monica, California, finished in 2:01:50.

Parker was a two-time Massachusetts state swimming champion in high school and swam for three years at Harvard, primarily in freestyle sprint events, according to USA Triathlon’s website. In 2003, she won the second triathlon she ever participated in, on New York’s Long Island.
