Not only am I delighted for my nomination but I’m especially pleased that Corrinne’s grit, tireless training and empathy has been realised amongst her peers.”

Delighted Corinne said: “What a start to the year! My thanks go to Dave for coaching me and in particular my sponsors; The Cycle Studio, Shires Physio and Everyone Active. It’s fitting that these are all local businesses who are supporting local triathletes to do their best in trying to gain a place on the European and global sporting stage.”
