Crystal Palace And The Comets
Crystal Palace update. Yesterday we had fourteen little Comets competing their hearts out on a brilliant days racing. Old codger Holden started the racing in the morning. From then on I could relax and watch the excitement of Mack Downey, Poppy Jensen and Jessica Lilywhite in T3. In T2's we had Ben Bisson and Spencer Bateman for the boys and Maisie Jensen, Poppy Parry and Thalia Bowden-Stone in the girls. T1 Boys saw George Turner, 4th boy, tying for the highest placing of the day along with Darcie Bateman, 4th tristart girl, competing in her first Triathlon. Also T1's Thomas Park, Luca Branch, and Nathan Prior. In T1 girls we had a two representative in new member Daisy Parry. There was quite a few Comets competing in their first Triathlon, if you want to check up on the days results go to http://www.stuweb.co.uk/events/2016/05/15/2295/ and if you want to see the London League standings after yesterdays results Jim Desmond, London Region Junior race co-coordinator has done :a fantastic job of getting them out so quick and here they are http://www.triathlonengland.org/London/athletes/London_juniors/London_junior_series I think this photo of the "Dynamic Duo", Spencer & Darcie epitomises the spirit of Comets and how tough Triathlon is.and what it takes to compete.
