Bedford Spring Aquathlon May 2018

Tri-Force Juniors had 2 representatives in the Bedford spring aquathlon: Jonathan Bint and Rebecca Bint. Unlike most other races, the ages are split by school years covering year 3-11.

Jonathan was first up in the Year 7 race with 10 boys taking part. He had a strong swim, overtaking one boy on the swim and another in transition to come out in 2nd. Onto the run, Jonathan used the earlier starters to try and make up some ground and managed to gain some ground. He finished 1st overall, winning by 6 seconds. Jonathan was thrilled as this was his first ever win.

  

Rebecca was the last to go in the Year 5 race, where there was a strong turnout of 11 competitors. Unfortunately Rebecca had hurt her ankle earlier in the day but was still determined to take part. She had a consistent swim, coming out in 6th place from the pool. Her run was steady and she managed a 6th place but the stronger swimmers were not as good on the run so she managed to make up a place to finish 5th overall, only 18 seconds behind 4th.
