European Triathlon Championships

Text taken from a recent blog written by others, I thought it would be easier just posting their write-up. Slightly abridged ;)

David Horne represented Great Britain (Age Group M40-44) at the recent 2014 ETU Triathlon European Championships on Friday 20th June, 2014. Held in the Austrian town of Kitzbuhel, the European Championships provide four days of non-stop triathlon action across both Sprint and Olympic Distance. Over 1650 age group athletes took part over the weekend.

Friday’s weather wasn’t kind to anyone. Torrential downpours and a drop in temperature all added to the sense of drama for the start of the Sprint AG races.

David Horne delivered a super solid race to make the Top 10 by finishing 8th in the Sprint AG 40-44. David crossed the line as the second placed Team GB athlete – only 5 seconds behind fellow Team GB athlete Mark Young who finished in 5th. As David was a top 3 GB finisher, he has therefore gained automatic selection to represent the GB Age Group Team at next years European Triathlon Championships in Geneva, Switzerland. :D
