The SW Triathlon Series came to a thrilling end at Bowood House on Saturday for Crispin School pupil Charlie Cook. Qualification was at stake for next month's Inter Regional Championships to be held at Mallory Park, Leicester.

The SW Triathlon Series 2nd race took place in Gloucester. The 300m swim, 6k bike and 2.4k run was held in waves and saw the race favourites in different heats. The race leaders were evenly matched on both swim and transition with Cook producing the fastest bike section though was unlucky to be caught on the run time taking 2nd place just 5 seconds behind the winner.

Street based athlete Charlie Cook produced another impressive performance at the weekend, winning the Burnham Triathlon.

In a competitive field which saw entrants travel from as far as Bristol, Bath and Plymouth, Charlie knew he would need to be at his best. 

South West Duathlon Champion Charlie Cook continued his rich vein of form at the weekend. The Crispin School's athlete as ranked 15th in the country going into Pentathlon GB Schools Modern Biathlon at The Crystal Palace National Stadium and knew he would need to be at his best to hold or better this position.

The South West Regional Triathlon Series kicked off on Saturday with the Bath Duathlon at Odd Down race track. Heavy mist made spectating difficult and on the course, blustery winds and a wet surface, made it even worse for the athletes.

Street's Charlie Cook, who is sponsored by local charity TS5C, competed in the TRISTAR 3 category and posted the quickest time in the 1500m grass run ahead of the first shoe change.

"I have been training hard and my 2017 goals are to improve all my personal best times and previous rankings within the SW and Nationally. Recently I have been selected for the Avon and Somerset cross-country team to compete in the UK Counties Championships at Loughborough in March. Earlier this month I competed for Somerset Schools' Team at the South West Schools' Championships in Truro.
