TS5C Sponsored Athlete
The flagship fund has already benefited over 130 young athletes from Somerset in a variety of sports. TS5C sponsored athletes have already achieved significant results at both County and National level, and have competed for Team GB in international competitions.

My first year in the youth category has come to an end, it has had some highs and lows and I have learnt a lot and mind a whole bunch of new friends in the process.

The last event of the year was the U20 British Triathlon Festival at Mallory Park.

I have just come back from my best race experience this year after competing in the National School Games Finals at Loughborough University.  The organisers had done loads to make it feel like an Olympic style event. 

It has been a really busy couple of months with training and competing after the South West Open Water Championships at Weymouth at the start of July.

I have been out of Triathlon for a month or so now resting my knee after I had to pull up in a couple of races.  It was really disappointing as I was on track for top 15 placing in the Blenheim Palace Triathlon and the Leeds ITU Triathlon, but that’s growing for you!

My triathlon season is now starting to gain pace with my first Tri of the year at Burnham last weekend.  This year I race in the youth category which means a bit of a jump in race distance which makes it more challenging. 

The winter training for Triathlon is now coming to an end and the race season is just starting.  Over the winter I have been training with the South West Triathlon Academy which has been very good, great fun and has me got me ready for this coming season.
