GB Age-Groupers in the medals at Challenge Walchsee-Kaiserwinkl

11 podium finishes at the ETU European Middle Distance Triathlon European Championships in Austria

Having already reported on the Elite races at the ETU Challenge Middle Distance Triathlon European Championships, which was held this year on conjunction with Challenge Walchsee-Kaiserwinkl on Sunday (see link below), I've now been able to access the finalised ETU Championship Age-Group results. Thus, here is our roundup of the GB Age-Group team from Austria.

The fastest British female Age-Group athlete overall was Simone Dailey (F25-29) in a time of 4:38:20. That earned her the Gold in her division as well as making her the third fastest Age-Group athlete overall in the ETU Middle Distance Championship.

That result represents a real return to form and health for Simone, who after twice making the AG podium at the Ironman World Championships in Kona has suffered a long period of injury and rehabilitation.

Simone was joined on the top step of the podium from a British perspective by Irene Peaty (F60-64) and Margaret Sills (F65-69). Margaret had previously won Bronze medals from this Championship in 2013 (Barcelona) and 2014 (Paguera).

For the British men, the fastest AG athlete was Tom Foster (M25-29) who crossed the line in 4:16:01. With that result Tom finished fourth in his category.
