NEW YORK (AP) -- A Colorado man and a Connecticut woman have won the annual triathlon that uses streets and waterways around Manhattan as a race course.

Jordan Jones of Golden, Colo., finished first in the men's competition in the New York City Triathlon, swimming about a mile, biking almost 25 miles and running 6 miles in one hour, 45 minutes and four seconds.

Amy Bevilacqua of Wilton, Conn., won the women's competition with a time of two hours and four seconds.

The event includes a swim in the Hudson River, a run through Central Park and a bike ride on the West Side Highway.

There were two deaths of participants connected to the event last year. A spokeswoman said there were no health issues this year.
