Remembering Becky

Published:

Welsh Triathlon are saddened to hear of the tragic passing of Rebecca ‘Becky’ Comins following a bike accident.

 

Becky was a popular face across the Welsh Triathlon scene, and a fantastic ambassador for our sport.  A current member of Dragon Tri Club, she was also a much-loved member of Newport Phoenix Cycling Club and Caldicot Running Club. Becky had also been a valued member and raced for Monmouth Triathlon Club in the past.

 

Becky was a fierce competitor, but with it had a positivity and energy that was infectious. The current Vintage Veteran Champion of the Welsh Triathlon Super Series, a title which she also won in 2019, Becky was due to compete in a Welsh tri-suit at the British Championships this weekend at WTS Leeds as part of Tîm Tri Cymru along with her son George. She was also looking forward to racing at the British Sprint Championships in Cardiff. Such was Becky’s love for the sport and wanting to be involved, she even volunteered to act as a Tîm Tri Cymru Team Manager had she not made a recovery from injury earlier this year.

 

Becky was a multiple Ironman Wales finisher and also represented the Great Britain Age Group Team at the European Championships in Tartu 2018, as well as at the World Championships in Lausanne in 2019, finishing competitively in both. In 2019, she was the fastest female at the Swansea Triathlon, and also the Minehead triathlon.

 

She loved the sport; she loved the training and Becky was central to any social activities across her clubs. Becky will be sadly missed by everyone within our triathlon community, and we extend our deepest sympathies to Becky’s family, Steve, George and Millie and her wider friends at this sad time.
