Witham’s year 7 athletes

26 Apr 2017

Izzy, one of Witham’s year 7 athletes, joined Ketton Tri club over the Easter break and completed her first ever Duathlon (running and cycling) on 8th April at RAF Scampton. Izzy has previously competed in a Biathlon (swim and run) and a Triathlon (swim, run, bike) at school but this was a big step up competing against some seasoned pros and club members! She did fantastically on the day, bringing home a 9th place medal! Rather encouragingly, Izzy would have actually placed 4th or 5th had she not incurred a time penalty in transition for taking her helmet off before getting off her bike. We look forward to hearing more about Izzy’s progress in Tri/Bi/Duathlon events as she gains experience and progresses her training. Well done Izzy!!
