Well done to Rachel Ward who competed for Great Britain at the World Age Group Triathlon Championships in Edmonton.

The race took place in Hawrelak, which Rachel described as being fabulously friendly and clean. Rachel competed in the standard distance race in a time of 1hr 41.20 secs. She was 18th out of 40 athletes in her age group and the 5th GB athlete home.

Rachel said ‘I was ok with my times, but a very long transition meant overall times were down a bit. I think jet lag and altitude affected my run slightly but otherwise, I just need to learn how to swim better, do more bike sessions and not get injured!!’
