Erin Jones takes 17th at World Triathlon event



Triathlete Erin Jones, a Hood River native and 2009 HRVHS graduate, has been busy this spring, traveling the globe to compete in a world series of triathlon races. Most recently, Jones competed in the International Triathlon Union Yokohama event in Yokohama, Japan, where she placed fourth on the American team and 17th overall in a field of 60 world-class athletes in the Elite Women category. Jones completed the bike, swim, run event in just 2 hours, 0 minutes, 15 seconds, which her father, Tony, said, was her best race so far of the world series. Jones, who currently trains in San Diego, Calif., will next head for a race in Ixtapa, Mexico and is looking to eventually qualify to compete in the ITU World Olympic Qualification Event to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in August.
