News Director

British stars Georgia Taylor-Brown and Joe Skipper have both joined the Bahrain Endurance 13 team for 2022.

Taylor-Brown claimed Individual Silver and Mixed Relay gold at the Tokyo Olympic Games last summer, as well as winning the overall Super League Triathlon title. But she believes there is much more to come in the future.


GTB: There’s more to come

She said: “I’m very excited to join the Bahrain Endurance 13 team. This is a group of absolute legends, and I feel honoured and very privileged to be part of that team.

“Winning the silver medal in Tokyo was a massive success and a childhood dream but I’ve still got more to do in triathlon; I’m not finished. And I believe Bahrain Endurance can help me achieve my goals in the years to come.

“I’m also super excited to head to the Kingdom of Bahrain and get involved in the sports programs taking place there.”


Skipper preps for St George

Skipper meanwhile is coming off a terrific 2021 season – headlined by IRONMAN victories in Bolton and Chattanooga. He goes into a double IRONMAN World Championship year full of confidence.

He will begin his season in South Africa in Port Elizabeth on April 3, as the countdown to St George in early May begins in earnest.

Skipper said: “I’m really pleased to be a part of Bahrain Endurance 13. It’s great to have their support as I go into a year with two Ironman World Championships and two PTO Tour events.

“I’m currently training hard in Spain in preparation for the upcoming season and will be racing at Ironman South Africa at the start of April.”
