On Sunday the 12th of March we had 20 athletes take part in the Sidmouth Aquathlon. It was fantastic to have so many athletes take part as this was undoubtedly our biggest turn out yet!
The girls put in some strong performances with solid times across the board. Ellen P-K was our first girl home in a time 32:03, including a new PB for her swim. Molly Perkins also performed fantastically coming second in her age group at what was her first ever aquathlon. Special mentions also go to Quitterie Ribes, Grace Jessett, Issy Cole, Sarah O’Neil and Hannah Brown for which it was also their first ever aquathlon.
The boys competed equally well. Finn Arentz did fantastically coming 2nd place in his age group in a time of 28:26. Olly Thorogood, the aquathlon superstar as always performed well, coming 3rd overall in a time of 26:00. Among other strong times was Brian Tai in a time of 29:06 and Callum Aldous in 27:52.
