Congratulations to Eden Schiller who has qualified to represent Great Britain in the European Age Group Triathlon Championships in the U19 years category – at 14 years the youngest confirmed qualifier to date. The Championships take place in Glasgow in August 2018.
Eden needed to finish in the top 3 in her age category in the third qualifying race at Thorpe Park to secure her first GB vest. Starting in the U30 Womens wave (approximately 80 competitors), Eden exited the 800m lake swim first overtaking competitors from the previous wave, maintained a good position on the 21km bike leg, and clocked the fastest female 5km run of the day.
Eden’s finishing time over the 800m/21km/5km distance was 1 hour 9 minutes and 4 seconds.
