Tough racing meant that medals were tough to come by, but three British Age-Group athletes – all with impressive CV’s already – secured Gold medals.
Flora Colledge (F30-34) was the fastest British Age-Group female athlete – and the second fastest across all nations – to add ITU Long Distance Gold to ETU Powerman Middle Distance Duathlon Gold (also in Denmark) earlier this year, and the same at the Zofingen ITU Powerman World Champs last year. Now, given the Flora also won the SWISSMAN Xtreme Triathlon (overall) just three weeks, quite a talent. Being called ‘Flora’ in triathlon currently carries some value, clearly!
Another winner – again – was the ever impressive Gill Fullen (F50-54). Adding to Gold on Sunday in the Duathlon (HERE), a successful trip to Denmark, after having also won her AG at the IRONMAN 70.3 European Championship, also in Denmark. Her next big race? Ironman Copenhagen! It’s certainly a ‘Denmark’ kind of a year for Gill.
8 days after @fullen_gill crossed the line to win Duathlon AG Gold, today GIll makes it a double crossing the line to win the world LD AG Triathlon title congrats #doubleworldchamp @BritTri pic.twitter.com/WvDx7TtsWm
