Together We Achieve

A photograph from the Trinidad and Tobago National Sprint and Olympic Triathlon Championships 2014, submitted as an example of ‘compassion’ to a social media campaign by psychologist, Paul Ekman. Participants were asked to upload photographs demonstrating what, in their own views, constitutes ‘compassion’, using the tag, ‘#picturecompassion‘ . This photograph was chosen among the five favourites.


Together We Achieve: A moment from the Trinidad and Tobago National Sprint and Olympic Triathlon Championships 2014, held at the Slipway, Chaguaramas, Trinidad on July 5th, 2014. Two individual competitors, Aliya Drakes and Bruce Mc Intosh, after having completed an hour and forty-five minutes of arduous swimming, cycling and running, run hand-in-hand to the finish line, ending their shared challenge together. Inadvertently, they bridged, not only the generation gap, but also gender and racial divides, all in one, intuitive moment.
