Richard Horton raced his first ever Duathlon in March at the British Elite Duathlon Championship - he was third overall and the junior winner. Fast forward a month, and now he can add the ETU European Junior Duathlon Championship to that too after victory today in Horst aan de Maas, Holand. In doing so, he pushed last week's European Junior Triathlon Champion Matthias Steinwandter into the bronze medal position.

In the Junior women's race, like Richard Georgina Schwiening won the British Championship in Loughborough last month, but she had to settle for silver here to Sveva Fascetti (ITA) - though British Triathlon are reporting through their Twitter page (@BritTri) that a wrong turn on the bike course may well have cost her that gold medal.
