More great performances from the GS team in the last couple of weeks while we were away on our Tri camp with a great bunch of athletes.
Steve Wilson was in action last weekend at the Northwood standard triathlon and completely smashed it finishing 2nd overall and had the run been a full 10k he may well have come away with the win! To follow that up, he raced the Poole half marathon on Sunday in preparation for his assault on the world of 70.3 racing and pulled out a huge PB finishing 10th overall in a time of 1:25:17 - awesome performance. Liza also ran well in the Poole half posting an excellent time and in the top 30 overall.
Becky Goodwin took on the elite race at the Blenheim Palace triathlon and performed brilliantly in her first step up to the elite category. Not quite able to stay with the pack in the swim, Becky put in a strong solo bike leg without the benefit of drafting in the pack to stay in touch and good run to finish in 1hr17min in 17th place overall and the first finisher in her age group.
Sarah Janes decided on a last minute entry into the Swanage Bay triathlon and had a great race finishing 2nd overall and collecting her first ever triathlon trophy! Masses to come from Sarah who has made a huge improvement already in her short time working with the GS team – and check out the new team hoodies in her photo
Also – Eric Sealey stepped up in distance again with a good run in the Dorchester half marathon and Marianne produced a 5k pb in the Yeovil parkrun as part of a brick session!
Lots more GS athletes racing this weekend in 70.3 Staffordshire, Leeds and Cotswold 113 – results to follow!
