Hopefully I have captured everyone apologies if not. There was some very positive racing for many and within that racing and for some others there were very good learning experiences to take away and digest. Racing at this level its important to understand
” The level of racing isnt going to come to you it is you that has to reach up to it”. Hence what the training you are faced with each week is designed to help you with. whilst what you are requitred to bring is the
the willingness to work
the willingness to learn and
the willingness to apply

British Junior and Youth Super Series Event Llanelli

The opening event in the British Triathlon Junior and Youth Super Series took place in Llanelli over the weekend with some strong performances from those TeamBW athletes that made the long journey over to South Wales.
In the Youth Boys Noah Canby took a well deserved 3rd place whilst in the Youth Girls Almi Neruraker finished a very creditable 8th.
Moving up to Junior Boys Jamie Bedwell finished 12th and in the Girls event Abi Hughes 13th with Maddie Drury 36th.
With very few of the top Junior and Youth athletes from around the UK missing from the event it gave a good indication for our athletes of the relative standards and an opportunity to measure up the processes of what they do and where they can tweak or overhaul approaches to make improvements should they so wish.
Well done to all those who toed the line.
Alongside the Super Series event there was a Childrens Series Duathlon (2k/6k/500m)in which Bethany Cook TS3 managed 1st.

IAPS swimming and S.E. Duathlon results

Some early results from the past weekend from the TeamBW athletes.

At the IAPS National swimming Championships held at K2 Crawley Bethany Cook finished 5th in the 50m Freestyle with a heat time 29.62 followed up with a final time of 29.23. Both swims PBs and the first time sub 30 for the 50m. Above all else the most enjoyable aspect was watching an athlete execute their race processes to the best of their ability. Gold dust !
At the Medway Duathlon part of the South East Childrens Series Daisy Burton (3rd) 11/12 Girls and Ed Armatyge (2nd) 13/14 Boys are definites that have been relayed apologies if there are others not mentioned here.

At the British Swimming Championships in Ponds Forge Sheffield Harry Stacey hit another PB in the 50m Butterfly with a 25.91 making it two PBs from two swims at the Championships.

At the London Marathon Matt Dowle snuck in under the 3hours mark for the first time in London despite having difficulties later on in the race ( couldnt be because he went out too fast ???!!!)

Alongside the London Marathon was the London Mini Marathon where Bethany Cook finished 3rd in the U13 Girls British Regional Championship event held over the last 5km of the Marathon.

The Kingfisher Aquathon part of the South East Regional Series following on from our own Team BW Aquathon last week once again gave an opportunity for some of the younger athletes to compete. Initial results show 2nd place results in their relative categories for Daisy Burton and Ed ward Armatyge. Full results can be found at
