Ellie shines in European Junior Triathlon Championships

WESTBURY Harriers clubmates Ellie Hobbs and Rosie Allen performed impressively for Great Britain at the European Triathlon Union Junior European Cup in Latvia last weekend.

The pair have both showed good form in the swim, bike, run event and fully deserved their selection into the GB squad for the championships staged in the capital of Riga.

Hobbs (pictured above emerging from the swim section) competed well to finish seventh overall and third Briton, finishing very strongly as she clocked the fourth fastest time over the 5k run (18mins 31secs) following the 750m swim and 20k bide.

Her total time was one hour 19seconds, just over a minute behind the bronze medallist Ida Lucia Burrows of Sweden.

Allen was 13th of the 25 finishers – with four athletes failing to complete the event – in 1:01.19.
