WARWICKSHIRE’S thriving triathlon squad Do3 impressed at the Marlow Duathlon and Aquathlon as three of the team secured podium positions.

In the middle distance aquabike – a 1.9km swim and 90km bike – Jamie Chatfield was victorious as he won the race in 3:02:09, with Andrew White from Stourton third in a time of 3:18:33.

John Wrottesley, a GB Age Group athlete from Moreton Morrell, followed over the line one second later to take fourth position. Natasha Chandler also completed the race with an impressive 3:45:51 and was in the top ten of the female category.

Ireland Age Group athlete Seanin McPherson was the overall winning female in the duathlon event made up of a 5km run, 40km bike and final 10km run.

Corinne Moss from Bishop’s Itchington was again in peak performance and placed as third female overall at the Leeds Castle Triathlon. She completed the Olympic-distance 1.5km swim in 26:04:32, 40km bike in 1:16:17 and 10km run in 43:52.

Katie Summer completed her first Olympic-distance triathlon in Birmingham while Jason Robbins and Joe Lee raced the Centurion Triathlon in Hertfordshire.

Robbins from Stratford raced the 100km event made up of a 2km swim, 82km bike and 16km run and Lower Quinton’s Lee took on the 100m centurion race – a 1.25-mile swim, 84m bike and 15m run – completing the event in 7:27:57 and claiming third position in his age group.

Do3 head coach Dave Knight said: “The squad ripped up the results book yet again. It seems the more we race the more determined we get and the seasoned athletes are seeing their training pay off on the podium and those who are new to the sport are seeing magnificent results and already wanting to push for more.

“Corinne (Moss) again excelled and the team at Marlow were well and truly flying the Do3 flag. We remain indebted to all of our sponsors including Everyone Active in Stratford, Warwick and Solihull who go the extra mile by enabling us to swim at 6am during the week.”
