GB Age-Group podium results from Spain: World AG Sprint Duathlon Championships

This past weekend your Editor had a few very enjoyable days in Aviles, Northern Spain, watching and supoorting at the 2016 ITU Duathlon World Championships. Along with the Gold medals of Emma Pallant and Alex Yee in the Elite and Elite Junior races respectively, a typically large Great Britain Age-Group entry was present with approaching 400 athletes racing in the Sprint (5km / 20km / 2.5km) and Standard Distance (10km / 40km / 5km) events. Hopefully many of you enjoyed / have been enjoying our extensive coverage / videos and images on our Facebook and Twitter social media channels.

For the Sprint distance race, this was the first year of that distance being held in draft-legal format, something we featured earlier this year.

  • The fastest British male athlete overall was Thomas Crouch (Bronze, 30-34), who was also the fourth fastest athlete overall in 1:00:25.
  • Gwen Kinsey (Gold, 40-44) had a busy day - as she was a (very) late notice stand-in to join the Emma Pallant, Danny Russell and Carl Avery in the Mixed Team Relay event later in the day, where the team added a Silver.
  • Rodger Wilkins (Gold, 40-44) and Cathy Dawson (Gold, 45-49) won their categories by just one second.
  • Both Cathy Dawson and Wayne Aylesbury (50-54) also won the Sprint distance event earlier this year at the European Championships in Kalkar, Germany, to hold both titles in the same year.
