TALENTED Warwickshire triathlon squad Do3 was in good form at the 2018 Glasgow ETU Sprint Distance Triathlon European Championships on Saturday.

Seven of the Do3 squad headed to Strathclyde Country Park near Glasgow and raced at age group level for their respective countries – Great Britain, France and Ireland.

The championships brought Europe’s top triathlon talent together to compete over a 750m open water swim, 20km bike and 5km run.

GB’s Corinne Moss continued a stellar season of wins by placing third in her age group and was eighth woman overall. Her aggregate time of 1:13:12 was made up of an 11:35 swim, 36:04 bike and a 5km run in 21:50.

The rest of the squad also achieved success in the highly competitive field of athletes drawn from more than 30 countries.

Racing at age group for Ireland, Seanin McPherson completed the race in 1:21:44 and Mel Knight who represents France finished in 1:23:51.

Other Do3 age-groupers who represented GB were Sonya Tate who came over the line in 1:21:55, Kate Miller in 1:24:13, Isabelle Rayner in 1:21:59 and Jonathan Ward in 1:15:32.

Moss said of her efforts: “The European Championships are an absolute highlight in my racing calendar and I’m delighted with my results. To podium with such stiff competition is an utter dream.

“This season I’ve been fortunate to have had a lot of great races and without doubt it’s down to the team around me.

“To wear the GB kit is an amazing feeling and I’m proud so many of my fellow squad members competed and did so well and were a part of a fantastically organised event.”
