Sisters Eden and Robyn Schiller competed in the BCT Splash and Dash Aquathlon today in Wombourne. Eden took the lead in the youth swim from the start, and although closed down by the boys on the run never looked threatened taking overall first place in the Youth category.
A solid swim in the TS2 girls event placed Robyn third coming out of the water and followed by one of the fastest junior transitions of the day saw Robyn chasing the lead girl out onto the run. Maintaining that position Robyn finished an excellent second.
Congratulations also to Eden and Harrison Lee for being selected onto the West Midlands Triathlon Academy for the coming season.
Their first training session was a mountain bike day at Cannock Chase yesterday. By all accounts, both NTC athletes impressed the coaches and both will now attend the next Academy session after Christmas in Redditch. Well done all.
