Um, I mean WINNERS.
It was hard enough judging each of the three rounds, and THEN we had to choose only one winner out of all?
There was no other way to call it than a tie. :)
Leigh's Round One answers one, two, and three.
Sara's Round One answers one, two, and three.

This Triathlon blew my mind. It started out over a little phone call with Lynne at Sakura Bloom. We struck up a friendship and chatted for HOURS. And brainstormed a little ol' idea that turned into the Sakura Bloom Triathlon.
I am so fond of each of our seven contestants in many different ways. I feel blessed and honored that they entered this contest and went with it with their full hearts.
And now a special message from Lynne at Sakura Bloom:
I want to echo everything Steph said: it has been such a joy to do this contest and get to know these seven amazing women and their families over the last two months. I wish I could meet each and every one of them in person!
So much has happened: two babies were born during the contest, one of the videos went viral, and we collectively spread the love of babywearing to family and friends around the world. Hooray!
Our congratulations to Leigh and Sara Sophia, and our heartfelt thanks to all the participants for allowing us into their lives and for touching our hearts in so many ways.
As a thank you to all of you that have followed along during the Sakura Bloom Triathlon, Sakura Bloom is offering a sample sale now live with many one-of-a-kind slings, including some of the beautiful slings seen during the Triathlon.
With admiration and gratitude,
Lynne and everyone at Sakura Bloom
