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.

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!

I have been keeping up my training and decided as I could not race in the Super Series at Eton, I would compete in the South West Open Water Championships in Weymouth.  I raced in this last year as part of my training to swim the English Channel so had a good idea of what it would be like.

This year I competed in the 3km race and as you can see from the picture in brilliant conditions.  The race went really well and I was the first U15 girl to finish for Somerset and second in the region.  This mean I have qualified to compete in the National Open Water Championships in Sheffield at the end of this month which I am really pleased about.

So I have a couple of weeks of training time before I go back to triathlon at Hetton, as the Super Series visits the Norther East. This will be a challenging day, as although the races are shorter, I will compete in two individual races and a team relay all in one day. Then, home for a week of rest and some training before venturing North for the National Open Water Championships in Sheffield.
