BERMUDA CONNECTED ATHLETE GORDON BENSON IN UK OLYMPIC TEAM

Thanks to Steve and Patty Petty for the following :

22 year old Gordon Benson has been selected to the British Olympic Triathlon Team for Rio. Benson is a name which may not be familiar to local triathlete triathletes but his father Gerry Benson lived in Bermuda and in 1981 did the Hawaii Ironman with Jim Butterfield.

The younger Benson visited Bermuda about 6 years ago and trained with local triathletes and ran in a few running events.
