Triathlon Trials

Awesome performance from Team Kennet Junior Triathletes at the British trials for European Youth Elite Championships at the Blenheim triathlon today. James Mclaughlin and Sam Hart were competing. Sam swam well coming out with the main lead group, just behind the 2 leading athletes. After the bike they had reduced their lead with only the foot race over a hilly 2,500m to go. With the top 6 going to the Europeans it was a fast paced run as they started up the final hill back towards the palace Sam managed to get into 4th place breaking clear of the rest of the group. This he held to the end securing his first elite GB selection for the upcoming championships in Lithuania. James also had a good race in this highly competitive field coming 30th overall.

Team Kennet u11 Girls took part in the Henley Kids Triathlon and were successful as a team on the day with some 300 youngsters taking part.
