David and Jack Bernatova
The Typhoon Texas Kids Triathlon, presented by Texas Children’s Hospital, was recently held at the Typhoon Texas waterpark in Katy. Brothers and avid athletes David and Jack Bernatova (pictured, from left) proudly displayed their medals after a grit-filled performance in the race. David placed third of the almost 400 kids this year and Jack was third in the 8-year-old group. David has won two first-place titles, one second place, and three third-place titles since the age of 6 in a variety of triathlons (not just Typhoon Texas). Jack has had two first places, one second place, and two third places since the age of 6. They have placed in the top three in every single triathlon since 2019. Their little sister Mariana, 2, cheers them on along the sidelines at all their races.
