Pippa and Larrisa went to Northampton on Saturday 28th April to compete in the Duston Triathlon. Larissa was 2nd girl in Tristar 1 missing out on first place by one second! She was the fastest child in the swim. A huge achievement and followed it up with a strong bike and run. She is becoming a serious athlete.
Pippa tried really hard to improve her times from last year! Her swim was the most improved taking her time from 3.22 last year to 2.45 this year. Despite a difficult first transition Pippa did her best for the cycle and run finishing 54 out of 96 and 27th girl! Pippa just loves taking part and the smile on her face when she crosses the finish line is priceless!
Triathlon is a sport which you learn so much in every race. Is is not easy racing and these girls have performed extremely well in competitive classes.
Next race – Beachborough Aquathon@bloxham this Sunday – see you there!
