With many still riding the glorious Team GB Olympic 2016 triathlon wave, The Castle Triathlon Series was delighted to continue triathlon related successes with the official presentation. Will Clarke was in Bejing 2008 as part of the Team GB Triathlon team coming an admirable 14th.

Will Clarke who qualified for Kona coming second at IM Copenhagen on Sunday said: “It’s great to see companies take part in such an event and see such competitive spirit and the promotion of a healthy lifestyle. The winning teams timings are strong and clearly Credit Suisse has a lot of very sporty people working for them.”

Earlier this season 100 city workers, 28 teams, sweated it out as they competed against banking rivals in Montgomery Square, Canary Wharf in a staged event, organised by Castle Triathlon Series in partnership with Speedo and KPMG. Credit Suisse took the winning slot on the competitive leaderboard covering an impressive distance of 4,640 metres (172 metre lead) as their team swam for three minutes in an endless pool, biked for four minutes on a cycle ergometer and ran for three minutes on a treadmill. See the full scoreboard here.

There was an impressive selection of teams including KPMG, Barclays, Santander, HSBC, Credit Suisse, Citi Bank, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, NSPCC, Canary Wharf, Clifford Chance and many more. The teams were made up of three individuals, competing in one discipline each and representing the same company.

This Wednesday (24 August) Credit Suisse received a winning trophy, £1,000 charity gift, courtesy of Speedo, which they will donate to national children’s charity NSPCC, and each team member got a KitBrix bag.
