TS5C Sponsored Athlete
The flagship fund has already benefited over 130 young athletes from Somerset in a variety of sports. TS5C sponsored athletes have already achieved significant results at both County and National level, and have competed for Team GB in international competitions.

"The cross country season has now come to an end with me competing for Avon and Somerset at the National Counties event in Loughborough a few weekends ago which was fun, but it is now time to get back to Triathlon.  My first race of the South West series was the Bath Duathlon this weekend at Odd Down Cycle Circuit in Bath.  The weather was awful it was windy and quite foggy which meant you could not see far around the cycling circuit.

Christmas is over and it is time to train hard and compete in the cross country races that Jessica has identified. 

It has been a busy couple of weekends doing a number of different events.  Firstly I travelled to Plymouth with my swimming club Street and District Swimming Club, I picked up 4 personal bests out of the 5 races I competed in, not a bad start to the season.  On Sunday I went to Bowood House to compete in the Bowood Duathlon.  

My Triathlon series has finally come to an end for 2016. 

Although the Southwest Series finished in July, I was selected to be part of the South West Team for the Inter Regional Championships last weekend at Strathclyde Country Park.  

Last weekend I went to the last race of the South West series, the Plymouth Aqauthlon.  It was an early morning start as we had to be registered by 8.30am for a 9.30 start so early to bed on Saturday! 

It has been a busy couple of weeks racing first at Eaton Dorney and then at Bowood House this weekend.  The race at Eaton as well as being a round of the South West series was the selection event for the South West Team for the National Championships being held in Strathclyde in September.
