West Kelowna's Brock Hoel led from start to finish en route to gold as Okanagan athletes swept the boys triathlon at Albert Dyck Lake.

A strong run from Summerland Keegan Ingram saw the Zone 2-Okanagan athlete claim silver. He was followed by teammates and Braden Kersey of Vernon and Connor Hobbs of Kelowna.

The triathlon saw the athletes complete a 500-metre swim in Albert Dyck Lake, a 10-kilometre bike ride on a road course in the area, followed by a three-kilometre run comprising two laps of the lake.

The exhausting event will be followed by the same athletes competing in a duathlon – comprising running and cycling events - Friday afternoon.
