GB age groupers win 11 medals in Mexico

GB’s age-group team have won 11 medals, including three golds, at the 2016 ITU Sprint Distance Triathlon World Championship in Cozumel, Mexico.


One of the golds went to Michael Smallwood who 24 hours after winning gold in the 70-74 category at Aquathlon World Championships won another gold in the sprint distance. His time would also have been fast enough to win the 65-69 division. He is also taking part in the standard distance on Sunday so is now focussed on winning the treble.

Liz Dunlop (60-64) is also a double medal winner in Cozumel, adding another silver to that which she also won in the Aquathlon.

Jacqui Phillips (45-59) and Barbara Holmes (55-59) won the other two gold medals. In taking Silver in the 20-24 category, Brittany Tate also earned the accolade as fastest female British athlete. The fastest male was James Hodgson (20-24). He finished seventh, behind a podium sweep for the speedy Mexican athletes.
