Will Wright selected to represent team GB
Huge congratulations to Will Wright who has just heard that he has qualified for Team GB for the Long Distance Triathlon World Championships in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain, in July.
His qualification is based on his results from last year – winning the Scottish Triathlon Championships and gaining a Bronze at the European Triathlon Championships.
The event consists of a 4km swim, 120km bike and 30km run. Part of the challenge will be racing in the heat.
An excited Will, who runs Tiree Fitness here on Tiree, told An Tirisdeach “Having qualified for the team I feel really motivated to get out and train hard, wearing the Team GB colours definitely adds incentive to push as hard as possible and race that much faster”. He has promised to post updates on the Tiree Fitness website so that people can keep track of how the training is going and perhaps join him at some of the training sessions.
