Wight Tri's Dave Sweet
Athletics Sport


6 Wight Tri Members ventured across the Solent for the Applemore Triathlon event in Southampton earlier this month.

The event consisted of a 400m pool swim, a 30k bike ride and a 5k run.

In stark contrast to the weekend just gone, the athletes faced very cold conditions with the temperature just 7c coming out of the pool swim.

Janet Fletcher crossed the line in 42nd overall but claimed 1st in the Women’s 40-49 category. Angela Tapster finished in 118th overall and 6th in the Women’s 40-49 class.

The event was very well signed and marshalled and a great event for a season opener.
