Area 10 Tri Monmouth Jan 2018

The 2018 Triathlon season kicked off on Sunday in Monmouth where Area 10 held their qualifier for the Pony Club National Triathlon Championships in March.

As a result the standard of competition was very high with many accomplished competitors vying for a ticket to the finals.
Miles H was our sole Tadpole competitor. He finished in 7th place and was part of a mixed team taking 4th prize.
Our Mini Girls were Yasmin K & Ruby B. Yasmin shot but was sadly overcome with a high temperature and had to withdraw. Ruby carried on with her customary excellent run & swim to take 9th place.
In the Junior class our three boys, Charles H, George H and Will C were joined by a N Hereford competitor. They won the team class against much opposition with Will taking individual 1st (Best Shoot and Run) and Charles 6th. Will secured qualification for the National Tri.
Tom C was our only Senior competitor. He found himself up again the best competitors Wales can offer but held it together to take 4th prize. Winner of the class was Jack S (Runner Up Open Boy at Bishop Burton last year) and Morgan T 3rd (Junior Regional Champion last year). Moving up a level is always hard but it’s a great feeling to compete against the best and put up a good fight!
