Triathlon World Championships
Lynsey Elliott, Director and co-owner of local TCSP Acclaim Limited, has recently returned from Chicago where she has been competing in the Triathlon World Championships for the Great British age group team.
This marks the end of an exciting season that has seen her at the Island Games in Jersey, European Championships in Geneva and winning the Gold medal at the English National Championships for her age group.
The Chicago World Championships saw the toughest competition of the season by far, with the top places in Lynsey’s race being taken by athletes from Mexico and the USA. Lynsey was the first British athlete home in her age group finishing in 18th place overall.
Lynsey says “It was a tremendously competitive field of girls in Chicago, and fabulous to be part of the GB team this year. During the swim it was tough to find racing speed due to the sheer volume of athletes in the water and choppiness of Lake Michigan. The cycle took us on a very technical course around the city with a great deal being in underground tunnels which gave some fast times. The 10k run was amongst the crowds so the support was amazing, with the U.S. spectators being just as supportive as the G.B. contingent. I know what areas of my race I now need to focus on for next season and will hopefully come back strong for the European Championships in Lisbon in 2016”.
