Reece Ashfield 1st Place ETU Duathlon European Championships

This weekend we have had athletes age group racing at 2019 Târgu Mures ETU Duathlon European Championships in Romania. Young Reece Ashfield finished in first place in his 16-19 age group. A brilliant result proving that the hard work he has been putting in is now paying off. Also racing in Romania were Sarah Kennard and Gary Bonner finishing 7th and 9th in their respective age groups.

Nearer to home the choppy waters of Lake Bala led to a reduced swim distance for competitors at the Olympic distance race. A popular closed road race which also was home to the Welsh super series. Athletes racing in our colours yesterday were: 

Keith Bate who finished first in the 60-69 age group and 20th overall, an amazing result and a really great example of dedication and hard work. Neil Millward 2nd in age group and 8th overall. Mark Southall 4th in age group and 28th overall. Hannah Pearson finishing 3rd lady overall against some tough competition and even getting a TV interview for her efforts. Carolyn Holles came home 30 minutes quicker than last year finishing 7th in age group, a great result. Rob Charlesworth said he “had a bit of a mare in the swim and T1 but got into the bike and run ok” unsure of overall result and Stuweb results ay workin.
