From Parys "Absolutely delighted to have won the Laguna Phuket Triathlon -also known as the 'Race of Legends'. I had a 5minute deficit out of the water, but thankfully I posted the fastest bike and run splits of the day and won comfortably by 4mins- enough time to trot down the finish chute with local celebrity Kandi the baby elephant!





Congratulations to Nicky, Jane and Susanna who swam the 1500 at Barnet on 23 Nov. Personal bests for  Nicky and Susanna, and third in her age group. Nicky and Jane won their age groups.



Success in Barbados - Christine wins the 1.5km sea swim, and Penny is second in the 55+ age group. To see some of Jackie's pictures go to the picture gallery.
