Campbell Picks Up Silver in the Dominican Republic
National Elite cyclist Teniel Campbell has added another accomplishment to her cycling name as she has become the first Trinidad and Tobago cyclist to pick up a medal at the Elite Women's Pan American Road Cycling Championship in Santo Domingo. Racing on Saturday afternoon, the 23-year old finished second behind Chile's Paola Munoz in the 90km race, finishing in just over two hours.
Campbell, who made her Olympic debut on July 25, 2021, continues to make way for women's road cycling in the region. A professional rider for GreenEDGE Cycling in Australia, she took to her social media to express her joy. "I may not have won gold but the feeling on the inside listening to how much I am impacting and giving them HOPE was indescribable." She doubled down on her goal of helping the event in the region. "My goal's to assist in the development and growth of the sport in my region is still very much at heart and I hope to create a smoother pathway for you guys to reach to the top" she ended.
We look forward to seeing much more Campbell in the coming years.
