Hopefully the effects of delivering a massive interview to John Levison weren't too much of a strain for Dr T as she was third on the podium at the Laguna Phuket Triathlon! There are quite a few GBR identified athletes in the results - we're guessing most of them are living and working in the region rather than just making the trip for the race.

Pos Male Female
1 Ruedi Wild (SUI) 2:34:41 Melissa Hauschildt (AUS) 2:45:24
2 Massimo Cigana (ITA) 2:36:44 Radka Vodickova (CZE) 2:46:53
3 Simon Agoston (AUT) 2:38:46 Tamsin Lewis (GBR) 2:51:02

The slightly less sunny shores of Gosport saw the first of the Winter series of Salty Sea Dog duathlons and Peter Campbell (Portsmouth Triathletes) and Emma Underwood made their mark in the sprint distance, full results HERE. In the Supersprint distance the wins went to Jack Loveday (Optimus) and Gemma Fromage-Crawford, results are HERE.

The Cerist Aquathlon was the last race in their season-long series of events and saw wins for Dylan Jones and Anita Saycell. Full results are HERE.

There was tough competition at Castle Combe yesterday at the British Universities & Colleges (BUCS) Duathlon, held as part of the 9Bar Chilly Duathlon at the racing circuit.

First across the line for the men was Oli Mott (Cardiff Metropolitan University), but he would shortly afterwards be disqualified for incorrectly racking his bike in T2. That meant that the win went to the current World Under-23 Duathlon Champion Richard Horton, who just 12 hours or so earlier was collecting the British Triathlon Male Elite Duathlete of the Year award in Birmingham. With five athletes in the top eight finishers, Loughborough University were the clear team champions, alongside Richard's individual gold.

The women were lead home by Charlotte Taylor (University of Warwick) - a World AG Champion in London - ahead of Sophia Saller and Vicky Johnston. Current World Juniior Duathlon Champion Georgina Schwiening was fifth. It was a team gold for Loughborough in the women's event to complete the double
