YWCA Women’s Triathlon
A pair of sisters finished first and third on Sunday in the YWCA women’s triathlon. More than 1,200 athletes laced up, geared up and suited up for the YWCA women’s triathlon at Lake Nokomis.
Seven-year-old Riley Gallagher was cheering on racers crossing the finish line at the YWCA Women’s Triathlon Sunday at Lake Nokomis, when the fun ended in an instant. At first, Riley’s mother, Helen Gallagher, thought her son was just excited. “I heard screaming and he lives with Asperger’s, and I turned around because I thought maybe he was having a meltdown,” Helen said. “And then he’s like, ‘That dog bit me,’” Helen said.
