The evening of Friday 5th July brought the opening challenge of her weekend with the Wales Swim. Issy, one of the youngest competitors ran down Tenby’s North Beach along with over 700 other swimmers to compete in the 1.2-mile swim. She battled through the crowded waters overtaking Olympic swimmer David Davies on his first lap of the longer race of 2.4 miles. Issy emerged from the sea to cross the finish line in a time of 24 minutes. This gave her first place in the female race – 3 minutes ahead of her nearest rival and an impressive fourth place overall.
Issy had entered the adult race, rather than the junior swim, as she felt it was better preparation for her upcoming triathlon races, so wasn’t really expecting any sort of result. She is currently leading the Welsh Tristar Triathlon Series 2013 after an impressive win at the Gemau Cymru Welsh qualifier event held in Cardiff the previous weekend and will now be representing Wales at the British Triathlon Inter Regional Championships to be held at Eton Dorney in August.
Issy’s weekend didn’t stop there as on Saturday 6th July she joined her coach, Martin Poole and another 1000 cyclists to compete in the Wales Sportive – a 42 mile bike ride around South Pembrokeshire which they completed in a time of 2hrs 41 minutes.
