Alison Jackson placed second at the Vancouver Triathlon.

Jackson, who competes on the Trinity Western Spartans track and field, cross-country and swimming teams, finished the Olympic distance course in 2:16:17, just 16 seconds behind race winner Alee Sharpe.

Jackson was also tops in the women’s 20-24 age group.

The race was held  at Stanley Park.

Jackson completed the 1,500m swim in 29:07, the 37.6-km bike ride in 1:07:59 and the 10-km run in 39:12.

Earlier this summer, Jackson won the Alberta Olympic distance provincial championship which earned her a spot in the 2012 ITU Triathlon Age Group World Championships in Auckland, New Zealand.
