Savannah Vinsant, a Red's member, traveled to London to compete in the Women's Trampoline at the Olympics this past Saturday. She competed in the final round to finish 6th overall. We are very proud of Savannah! Congrats!
Mackenleigh Theriot won the silver medal in her division in two events, Double Mini and Powder Tumbling in the National Junior Olympics held this summer. Mackenleigh currently holds the best performance scores in the state of Louisiana in the event of Double Mini. She is 9 years old, Trains at Tumbling and Trampoline Express and is coached by Lydia Tauzin. We are sure to see more of Mackenleigh in the months and years to come. Congratulations!
While reviewing the photos of the Kids Triathlon held last Sunday at Red's I couldn't help notice the photo below. This kid is really FLYING thru the race! Thanks to Val Aloisio for the awesome photos. More photos are coming soon. Stayed tuned.
There was Kevin Castille, blazing down Richmond Road for all the world to see, turning in the most dominating performance in the 36 years of the annual Bluegrass 10,000.
At 40, Castille is the first "masters division" winner of the 6.2-mile footrace.
Finishing in 30 minutes, 7 seconds, he finished a whopping 2:03 ahead of runner-up Musa Kimali. Until Wednesday, the greatest margin of victory in a Bluegrass was a 2:02 knockout by Benny McIntosh, who ran 30:19 to Mike Snyder's 32:21 in 1994.
While Castille was practically out of sight from his pursuers, he was in plain view of an admiring crowd.
Congratulations to Kevin! Kevin worked here at Red's for years until he moved away to pursue his racing. We, at Red's, still affectionately consider him one of Red's family. Wishing him all the best in his racing career.
