Georgia Taylor-Brown impresses once again

Over the winer months we've been trying to keep an eye out for triathletes performing week during our 'off' season, racing particularly well in the highling competitive cross country running scence.

In recent months that has included the County XC Champs, the Regional XC Champs and the BUCS (Students) XC Champs - plus of course the performance of Georgia Taylor-Brown at the European Junior XC Champs in December.

On Saturday it was the turn of the English National Cross Country Champs from Wollaton Park, Nottingham - and once again, Georgia Taylor-Brown was making headlines.

Junior Women - Results

Taylor-Brown was in a different class, winning the Junior Women's race by a hugely impressive 48 seconds. Having already dominated triathlon at a Junior level with two European titles, a World silver medal (and a World Duathlon Championship), Taylor-Brown's star is certainly burning bright right now. Georgina Schwiening and Sophie Coldwell also finish top-20.

Senior Men - Results

After a 'shocker' at the Northern Champs, 2012 World Champion Jonathan Brownlee had a much better race this time around in his first 'Senior' English Champs, finishing in ninth place, with Adam Bowden just eight seconds back in 11th and Tom Bishop 16th
