2013 has been a stunning season for Junior triathlete Georgia Taylor-Brown. Just when you thought that winning the British Triathlon Female Elite Junior Triathlete of the Year trophy at the BTF Awards was a suitably fitting way to end it, Georgia finds time to squeeze in yet another hugely impressive performance before we move into 2014.

Already the European Junior Triathlon Champion and World Junior Triathlon Silver medal winner, GTB preceeded her main triathlon season by finishing 17th individually, and winning team Bronze at the IAAF World Junior Cross Country Championships in March.

Yesterday Georgia gained international selection once again in running, this time racing at the European Cross Country Championships in Belgrade - with more success too. The British Junior women took team Gold, headed by race winner Emelia Gorecka, but Georgia also came tantalising close to an individual medal too, finishing in fourth place.

"I didn't think think I was going to do so well... I couldn't have done more than 4k at that pace, it was ridiculous! I'm really happy with it."

A superb performance, and with running standards at the sharp end of ITU racing improving year-on-year, another great sign - as if it were needed - that the career of Georgia Taylor-Brown is looking very promising as she moves up from the Junior ranks in 2014.
