This weekend we only had one race where we had athletes racing, it was the Tuska Triathlon at Porthcawl which was also doubling up as the Welsh Sprint Triathlon Champs. A really good field of athletes toed the start line, which made for exciting racing! 

  • Angharad Pocock: Angharad raced this race as a last chance to get in a multisport race before racing at Ironman Wales in 5 weeks. Angharad raced very well and secured a brillaint 2nd place and a silver medal in the 40-49 age group; well done Angharad! 
  • Andrew Martin: Andrew started his race super fast, coming out of the water in 4th or 5th place, but sadly his day was ended early (DNF) with a puncture on the bike leg. Andrew will be back racing soon enough though, he's representing Great Britain in Rotterdam at the World Triathlon Champs in September.
  • Gareth Hodgson: Gareth wasn't 100% for this race as he's had an injury for several weeks but was keen to race as he was lieing 2nd in the National Series rankings. Gareth raced really well, finishing 3rd in the Welsh Championships on the day and going on to secure 1st place in the National Series, very well done Gareth! 
  • Tom Nesham: Tom raced in the Junior division on Sunday and managed to win the Junior Welsh Championships on the day and also take 1st place in the National Series; well done Tom.
