A lot of â€śNewbiesâ€™ to the Tiger Triathlon this year Kristina Johnson-Short, race coordinator and city of Colville Recreation Coordinator, was generally pleased with the way the triathlon was run. â€śWe had a lot of first-time volunteers and I am new to all this,â€ť Johnson-Short said on Monday. â€śThere were a few glitches, but for the most part, it went well. â€śWe had a lot of good comments from the triathletes. I feel very positive about that.â€ť On the course, there was one mishap on the bicycle course down Highway 20, but no serious injuries. Johnson-Short said that the swim course was more precise in its measurement than it has ever been. The swim course around Gillette Lake was GPSâ€™d prior to the race on Saturday morning. Ninety triathletes finished with times from official race timer, AA Sports Limited.
