Framlingham Junior Triathlon (Ipswich)

It was a long trek to Framlingham for the Ipswich Triathlon, but three committed Tri-Force Juniors made the early start for a 9am race briefing.

In the Tristar 2 race, there were 16 girls with Antonia Jubb the sole representative. This has been a great season so far and today was no exception. Antonia had the fastest cycle and run, coupled with a 4th place on the swim. This gave her a 1st place win overall, 22 seconds ahead of her nearest rival.

There were 15 girls who took part in the Tristar 3 race but the only Tri-Force representatives were Christina Durbin and Jess Thorn. Christy’s started off with the fastest swim time. She lost a little of her lead on the bike to rivals from Patrac and Ipswich with a 5th place but consolidated her race with a 3rd place run to make the podium.

Jess had a consistent race with a 7th place finish on the swim, bike and run. However all the swim times were close at the top and she was only down by 17 seconds from Christy. Jess had the fastest transition and made up some precious seconds, finishing 5th overall.

Great racing girls!
