Forms 4/5/6 Mini Triathlon – 12 October 2016
20 girls from Forms 4, 5 and 6 took part in the Brownlee Foundation Mini Triathlon at the Park Club on 12 October.
This was an amazing opportunity for everyone as the event was being hosted by Alistair and Jonny Brownlee. These supremely talented brothers are the most successful triathletes of the modern era with Alistair having won gold medals at the last two Olympic Games.
The Brownlee Foundation is committed to giving children all over the UK a positive sporting experience and supporting the development of coaches and teachers in sport.
The girls got to experience all three disciplines starting in the pool. After the swim, a quick transition and they were onto the bikes for two laps around the grounds of the Park Club. The finale was a one lap run of the course. As the competitors crossed the finish line they were presented with a well-deserved medal and goody bag.
The highlight of the afternoon was having a photo with Jonny Brownlee as the team wore their medals with pride.
Well done to the competitors and a big thank you to all the parents who came to support.
