Ryan helps GB Youth in Triathlon Super League!

On Saturday (October 19) in Birgu and Bormla in Malta, a series of Triathlon Super League “Enduro” races were held, for multi age-groups. These involve the athletes undertaking two consecutive, non-stop (except for their five “transitions”) sets of Swim-Bike-Run, with the fastest (in Ryan’s race) taking just 23-23 to finish.  (Swim 300m-Bike 2K-Run 1K-Swim 300m-Bike 2K-Run 1.5K!) From earlier events in UK, Ryan had been selected to be part of the GB Youth (U18) Boys team. In this event, GB took seven of the first eight places, ranking 1-4 and 6-8!  Ryan finished an excellent 3rd of the 16 starters, in 24-18.   I hope his PAC training partners find time to congratulate him! Other teams involved in this race were Ireland, Jersey, France, Malta, and Slovenia. In other races there were seven other countries including Singapore, Canada, Hong Kong, and strong Italians. Please Hi-5 Ryan when you see him!

Our u15 Boys made a strong challenge at Wormwood Scrubs!

In their first Sportshall venture of the season we had a number of outstanding performances.  Three of our teams finished 3rd but all did their best and mostly showed the benefit of attending Saturday training.

The ‘A’ athletes were then ranked and awarded points starting at 24 for the best(A1).  Any ‘B’ athletes were then similarly ranked, starting at 12 for the best (B1).   Relays (R) ranked starting at 36 for winners.  No points given to mixed u15s.
