Congratulations to Tom Charles, Grandson of club stalwart Les Bailey, who competed in his first aquathlon today. Competing in Tri Star 1, (u11) against many older boys, Tom finished in 13th place in a respectable 10:18 in the 100m swim / 1.2k run event. Definitely a star of the future!
Meanwhile the TS3 girls were out in force again with Nixie Turner completing her second win on the trot in 10:53 (200m swim / 1.8k run). This gives her an unassailable 20,000 points in the West Midlands 2012 Aquathlon Series with only two further events remaining and the best two out of four scores counting.
Helen Jubb made it a one-two for Worcester Tri Club Juniors in 11:53, putting her second overall in the series on 18,521 points.
Also competing again were Rachel Powell (15th in 13:41) followed closely by Jordan Prust (16th in 13:42). Jordan and Rachel currently lie 11th and 12th respectively in the series.
The next event in the series is the Wrekin College Aquathlon on 20 May.
