On Monday 28 August Lucy Donnelly, Eden Schiller and Eammon Clowes represented the West Midlands in the under 20s National Triathlon festival. This was the big event of the season for most athletes and with it being the selection race for the junior world championships all the top British juniors were present.
With this in mind British triathlon had set a very technical bike course with lots of dead turns and switch backs to tests the skills of the young athletes. A hot sunny day also meant the swim was non wetsuit.
Eden was off first in the youths event and put in another fantastic performance to finish in the top ten and secure a top ten finish in the National Triathlon series.
Lucy and Eammon were off later in the day and both gave it their all in amongst a very high standard of competition from across the UK. Both took away great experience and lots of areas to work on for the future.
