Tîm Tri Cymru head to Cardiff

Published:

Tîm Tri Cymru will race on home soil this weekend at the British Sprint Distance Championships.

Earlier this month, Welsh Triathlon took a team of athletes to race at the British Standard Distance Championships. After a successful day in Leeds, Tîm Tri Cymru return to Cardiff this weekend with some new faces taking part in the British Sprint Distance Championships, our first event on home soil. The team will be proudly wearing their custom Tîm Tri Cymru Welsh Kit and turning Cardiff, a little bit more red for the day. 

In 2019 Welsh Triathlon took a team of 20 athletes ranging from 17 to 71 years old to represent Tîm Tri Cymru at the British Sprint Championships in Nottingham. After a successful pilot Tîm Tri Cymru has returned for 2022 but now competing both British Sprint and Standard Championships.

In 2021 Welsh Triathlon members had the chance to qualify to be a part of Tîm Tri Cymru by competing at either the Standard Distance Championships at the Porthcawl Standard Triathlon or The Sandman Sprint Triathlon or SWYD Sprint Triathlon, Barry Island. The highest placed Welsh Triathlon Member within each gender/category was then invited to attend, and a roll down list was devised for those who were unable to take their spot.

 

Named in the team list below is Rebecca Comins. Welsh Triathlon were saddened to hear of the tragic passing of Becky following a bike accident. Beckys family wanted her to be included in the list as she was so proud to have qualified for the team. Becky will be in our thoughts and with us all as we race together in Welsh red.
