FOR Rhys Montell, taking part in the Pacific Games for the first time will be one he remembers his whole life.
Montell is one of the three athletes that will feature in the Triathlon event at the Samoa Pacific Games in July.
Montell started off as a swimmer for his school when he attended Mount Saint Mary’s School and later moved on to Swami Vivekananda College.
His love for sports made him explore into Triathlon.
“I always took part in swimming and running in school and casually took part in these triathlon events until one of the officials came up to me and asked if I wanted to try out and that was where my career in triathlon started,” said Montell.
