The Stories behind the Headlines

Development Squad Selection

20 Dec 2020: We found out a few days ago that Grace Blair (Adw) has been selected for the Yorkshire Triathlon Development Squad. This is the first step along the talent pathway for British Triathlon. It follows a similar structure to most other UK Sport affiliated sports including the swimming version that we're well familiar with. She is one of a number of budding multi-sport athletes within our ranks, a tradition that goes back many, many years.

The most obvious previous example is probably Rebecca Milnes (SAS) who went on to win an ITU World Championship a decade or so ago. You can read all about her Decade at Dartes which she wrote for this website 12 years ago. Rebecca has since gone on to work for Para-Triathlon.

With so little happening during the pandemic, it is good to see that we are still making our mark in a variety of sports. Whichever route you take, being selected for a British Talent Pathway is a big achievement and one that needs a lot of hard work to remain on in subsequent years. Keep up the hard work Grace.

Christmas Schedule

13 Dec 2020: Just when things were getting back to normal for the 2nd time, up pops Christmas. It is very important for Phase 4 and Phase 5 to continue training over Christmas. we want to minimise further disruptions as much as we can while allowing you all to enjoy the festivities. It's unlikely that training loads will progress over this period, but holding things steady will allow us to make another push in the new year.
