Following their qualification in Liverpool two weeks ago, British Junior triathletes Ben Dijkstra and Alex Yee were today representing the Great Britain Athletics team at the SPAR European Cross Country Championships in Hyeres, France.

Reversing their position from Liverpool, Alex finished ninth (17:53) with Ben 19th (18:11). Alex was the first British finisher with Ben third, behind Christopher Olley (17th, 18:08). That was enough for the British Junior Men to earn the team Bronze medal, behind Italy and France.
