Our sponsored athlete for 2017
We are super excited to be sponsoring Liz Richardson again this year. She had a great 2016 and we hope she will have an even better 2017.
Liz competed in 10 triathlons this year (4 sprint, 2 standard and 4 middle distance), and finished on the podium in 8 of these. She had an overall win at Redcar Sprint, age-group wins at Leeds Standard, Exmoor 70.3 (half ironman), the Scottish Sprint Champs (Monikie), and was age-group runner up at Tranent Sprint, the British Middle Distance Champs (Grafman), the British Standard Distance Champs (Liverpool) and the European Middle Distance Champs (Austria). She lost her Scottish and European Middle Distance (half ironman) age group titles, but gained the Scottish Sprint Champ age-group title as compensation! So it’s been a great season for Liz, demonstrating she can perform equally well at shorter and longer distance triathlons. Because of this success Liz has chosen to target standard rather than middle distance races in 2017. Her main target races will be the standard distance European and World Champs, in Kitzbuhel and Rotterdam respectively.
These are the race dates I know so far (there will be many more to add!):
May 27th: Scottish Sprint Tri Champs, Strathclyde
June 17th: European Standard Distance Champs, Kitzbuhel, Austria
July 1st: Ripon Standard Distance (qualifier for world champs)
Sept 16th: World Standard Distance Champs, Rotterdam.
