17 year old ERICA HAWLEY followed up her excellent performances in recent months by finishing 6th out of 23 starters this Sunday 6th September at the British Triathlon Federation’s Under 20 Triathlon Festival in the 16-19 British Junior Series age category.
Erica completed the 750 meter swim, 20km bike and 5km run in 1 hr 9 mins and 59 secs with the winner, 19 year old Elisabeth Hood, finishing in 1hr 06 mins 01 secs. Erica’s performance was especially pleasing as this race doubled up as the UK qualifier for the junior world championships. Her run time of 20 mins 05 secs was also pleasing as it moved Erica from 9th to 6th in what has traditionally been her weakest of the three disciplines. The run was also slightly long at 5.1km. Judging by the bike times the bike course was either long or tough !!
