Congratulations to Rachel Powell who raced her first Sprint Distance Triathlon at Oswestry on Sunday 11th.  After doing 2 lengths too many in the swim she came out on the bike on a very challenging course and rode exceptionally well despite having a mechanical problem on one of the very big hills!  She came into the run looking tired but grew stronger on each lap and finished with a fantastic sprint across the line to come 2nd in the Youth category and beating many adults at the same time.  Most importantly she really enjoyed the race and said she is definitely returning next year to do it all again.  Thanks to the Junior coaches who have helped Rachel so much and given her the confidence to achieve great results.
