Below is a race report from Laura‘s first (of hopefully many) race representing GB at the Age Group World Championship on the 22nd October 2012 in Auckland, New Zealand. Pictures of her competing can be found by clicking here to access our Facebook site.
So I’m now one week after the biggest race of my triathlon career and have so many things to reflect on. The race was TOUGH. That came as no surprise but I’m not entirely sure I was prepared for the ferociousness of the field and the difficultly of the course. That aside it was an experience I will never forget and it’s left me hungry for bigger and better things next season.
In the build-up to Laura representing Great Britain at the World Amateur Championships next weekend she has been busy getting into the local press. The first to admit she hates all the attention of her success it is nice to see she is getting the recognition she deserves. This is hopefully the first of many times she dons the famous blue suit and we all wish her the very best of luck. Further to the below article in the Chelsea Chronicle she has also had a piece in the Sloane Square Magazine (p.14-15). Top work Laura!
You’ll be able to follow her progress with race updates on Twitter and Facebook starting next weekend.
A massive congratulations to our chairwoman Laura who on the 16th June 2012 qualified to represent GB in the 25-29 age group at the forthcoming world amateur championships in Auckland, New Zealand. Competing at the Dambuster Triathlon at Rutland Water, Leicestershire, Laura stormed to third place in her age group and eighth overall amongst all the ladies to secure her place on the British team. Photos of her competing are available on our Facebook site.
This result is credit to all the hard work Laura puts in and testament to the skill of the coaches at Premier Tri who have helped develop her from a keen competitor to a national representative. Congratulations Laura!
