British and World Champion within the space of a few days? No problem for Elite British Paratriathlete, George Peasgood.

This past weekend (HERE), George became British Cycling Para National TT Champion – and this afternoon in Portugal, he has added the UCI World Championship title to his C.V. Thus, he’s collected a World title in his ‘second’ sport, before achieving the same in triathlon. The coveted rainbow jersey is now his.

In normal circumstances, we would have seen George joining the rest of his paratriathlon team mates in Yorkshire this past weekend at the AJ Bell World Triathlon Para Series. His victory last month in Yokohama may well rank as his strongest performance in swim-bike-run to date, defeating the exceptional Martin Schulz (GER), the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games champion.

While recovery from that Yokohama race has meant that running is off the agenda in the short term, he is clearly in the form and fitness of his life, and picking up more awards in the meantime is a pretty good way of keeping focus. He certainly impressed ‘the boss’, Jonathan Riall, Head Coach for the Paralympic Programme at British Triathlon.

Fingers crossed that the form continues – and his running fitness returns – ahead of the Tokyo Paralympic Games.
