School Triathlon team, Haydn Cook, Josh Counter, Connie
Garvey, Josh Garvey, Henry Noad, and Rachel Roberts,
have just taken part in SYtri (Shrewsbury Triathlon) 'Darwin's Challenge'
Aquathlon 2015. The event was a sell-out, with 72 competitors, both
adults and children from the age of eight taking part, running and swimming
distances depending on their age. Each competitor had to complete their
set number of lengths in the swimming pool, dash out of the pool to put on
their trainers in the transition area and then run the allotted distance - with
the whole challenge timed.
Given it is
the first time they have ever entered this event, there were some fantastic
performances from the team, who range in age from 9 to 14 years. Oswestry
School’s triathlon coach, Mr Alun Morris said "They should be proud of
themselves. They have trained really hard for this and it will stand them
in good stead for the Oswestry School triathlon in June."
