Christ College year 11 pupil, Issy Morris, had a fantastic day at the GB Elite National Championships, held at the Rockingham Motor Circuit near Corby over the Easter break.
The youth duathletes competed over half the distance of the seniors (2.5km run, 10km bike, 1.25km run), with the race also acting as the season opener of the British Triathlon Youth Super Series. The event gives an opportunity for the athletes to test the success of their winter training in the traditional season opener.
Despite the wet, cold and very windy weather Issy took command of the Youth Girls’ race, with a composed first run she entered transition in second place amongst a group of five athletes. Issy rode strongly and managed to breakaway with two athletes, entering the second transition just in the lead. After a speedy transition she stormed away from the rest of the field to take the win and her first British National Title in a time of 32min.01sec.
The action now moves onto the British Aquathon Championships which will be held in Hyde Park, London on the 30th May where Issy will be hoping for another podium finish. This race consists of a 500m swim in the Serpentine followed by a 2.5km run. It takes place on the same course and on the same weekend as the sixth stage of the ITU World Triathlon Series.
This coming weekend will also see Issy represent Wales in the London Mini marathon for the fourth consecutive year. The three-mile event is the British Athletics Road Championships.
