Haywards Heath Entrants 2012
Haywards Heath Sprint Triathlon Entrants as @ 12/03/2012
Many of the 2014 triathlon events are starting to open up to entries around now. Here is an early list of the events I'm aware of so far but things are changing all the time. Some more news on the club calendar and club championships will follow in the next couple of weeks.
When entering events please remember that our official club name has changed for 2014 - we are now entering events simply as South London Harriers - no more complications or abbreviations any more!
Great night at the AGM and social on Saturday night. Thanks to everyone who came, especially those who travelled straight over from Lancing or Mitcham Common, it was great to see you all. Hope you enjoyed it.
The club awards were handed out; well done to:
Sprint distance champs: Jim Burdett and Rachel Coe-O'Brien
Olympic distance: Ian Taylor and Rachel Coe-O'Brien
Middle distance: Phil Gall and Chris Costiff
Duathlon: Ian Taylor and Natalie Gentry
Aquathlon: Gary Laybourne and Rachel Coe-O'Brien
Open water swim: Gary Laybourne and Tracy Land
Captain's award: Rob Drake
Points Trophy: Ross Gentry
'Special' award for 'amazing' bike performance: Pat O'Brien
At the Triathlon London awards ceremony on Saturday night, Ross Gentry was announced as third place finisher in this year's individual men's London League. Well done Ross (pictured below on awards night; unfortunately the awards ceremony didn't allow Batman villans to attend, so he went to the SLH Hallowe'en do instead...), awesome performance and well deserved.
South London Harriers, meanwhile, finished fourth overall in the London League out of about 30 clubs who entered. We finished ahead of several clubs who are much bigger than us, and improved one place on our 2012 finish despite losing several athletes (for good reasons!) for much of the season.
This is a real tribute to everyone who turned out to represent and support the club so often after the summer. Thank you so much everyone.
Good news for Simon and Fred Manning. They have both qualified for the ETU European Duathlon championships on the back of a pair of terrific duathlon performances last month. It will be Simon's second year running as a qualifier and Fred's first time. The champs will take place in the Netherlands in April. Well done both.
