Oliver Crossley sets the Age-Group pace in Weert, Netherlands

Claire Danson returns to form as fast female Brit

The latest Great Britain Age-Group team medal roundup features the ETU Triathlon European Championships over the Standard distance from Weert, The Netherlands, where the AG events were held over two days this past weekend.

Given the relative ease of travel, no surprise to see another significant number of Brits travelling – well over 300 athletes from the 700+ racing were in GB colours, but it’s good to see more than 20 nations represented.

As well as a total of 30 podiums, seven of which were Gold (and all listed below), in the usual manner we like to take at the overall times too. As well as winning M25-29, Oliver Crossley was also the fastest AG male across all divisions too, by more than two minutes. Oliver thus defends his AG title while also moving up one place overall, as he was second fastest last year in Tartu, Estonia.

Making quite a return to form (and health) was Claire Danson. The second fastest athlete overall, she took Gold in F30-34 (having won Bronze in Tartu). That follows what was a very scary time earlier this year at IRONMAN 70.3 Dubai, covered here by her Instagram post at the time:
