Last Sunday’s Aon Triathlons were truly a family affair.
Topping the list was the Godfrey family with 6 family members (Jessica, Thomas and Alex on one team and Matthew (who also did the individual event), Nigel and Mark on the other team) finishing 2nd and 3rd just 1 minute apart in the team open category.
Four Hammonds took to the start line with Louis 2nd (Boys 9/10), Rudi 5th ( Boys 11/12), mum Sharon 3rd ( Ladies 40-49) behind the top two ladies overall, and dad Richard 13th ( Mens 40 -49).
The Oliveira’s had three family members with Matthew 1st (Boys 13 to 15, mum Cathie 1st( Tri a Tri)and Blake 1st (Boys 9/10) .
The Hands family had five family members with Megan 1st in the girls 9/10, Nick third in the boys 9/10, Dad Tom 6th in the mens 50/59 and Chris 3rd in the mens 20/29.Tom’s wife Nancy Stevens was 3rd in the Tri a Tri.
Also finishing were Belinda (3rd female overall), Lucas (7th in 7/8) and Chloe Castree (4th in 9/10)
And then there was Charlie (2nd 60+) and Maria Duffy ( 1st 60+) and numerous other families had 2 competitors.
Apologies if any other family had three or more family members racing. I am sure the Pilgrims would have had if they had all been in Bermuda.
