2019 Târgu Mures ETU Multisport European Championships – Middle Distance Triathlon 7Th July

CAUTION ‘HERO ALERT’

Queensbury’s man of the moment Andy D travelled to Romania to take part in this middle distance triathlon, not entering and racing for QRC or Wakey Tri club Andy was racing for the GBR team in the 50-54 age category, a fantastic achievement and honour. I’m sure you’ll all agree this is brilliant for Andy and both his clubs.

I remember months ago when it was cold and wet when we would turn up for the winter league races and Andy would cycle there and back, we would all call him mad and have a chuckle with him, but it goes to show what dedication you need in your sport to gain that GBR jersey.

Anyway enough blubbing, the race was a 1.9km swim, 83km bike with a 20km run to finished in 57th place overall but more impressive was him finishing 7th in his age category and 5th Brit over the line.

Andy’s times were

Swim 40:43, Bike 2:18: 36, Run 1:32:37 (4th fastest run)

Well done Andy, lets hope there’s more to come.
