Henry BR was competing in the Senior event and came out oft he water in the leading pack, dropped a couple of places on the bike and finished the run to earn a top 20 finish.  Putting himself in contention for international team selections.
 
Off the back of recent results Ryan S has been selected for two British Team events heading out to Jersey and Malta. Watch this space to see how he does. WELL DONE RYAN
 
In other Tri news a huge well done to our chairman Russ who competed the Norseman Ironman, a gruelling event where you jump into a Norweigan lake off a car ferry to complete the swim, the run at the end is up a mountain, where if you havent reached a certain height you finish on a lower route.  Russ made the time and finished earning a world reknowned Black T-shirt!
