Swim-1st Junior Tri Club is proud to present… Charlie Polton, 2017 National Triathlon Champion

On 3rd May, the Independent Schools Association National Triathlon competition took place at Lucton School in Herefordshire. With competitors starting at intervals, although Charlie knew he was in with a chance, it was impossible to gauge his position against the field during the race. But, with remarkable determination, Charlie relentlessly pushed himself through the 200m swim, an undulating 4000m bike and a challenging 1800m run to finish victorious in a blistering time, well over a minute ahead of his nearest rival. All that hard work in training certainly paid off.

Congratulations, Charlie! National Champion!
