British Triathlon has confirmed its junior and U23 selections for next week’s World Triathlon Grand Final in London, with Olympian Lucy Hall and double ETU junior champion Georgia Taylor-Brown among those tipped for success.
In addition to Hall, GB’s three-strong U23 team also includes European champion Lois Rosindale and Tom Bishop, who has won medals at the last three ITU World Championships, winning bronze in New Zealand last year.
The junior team is made up of seven athletes under 20 years old who are all seen as genuine prospects for long-term success in the sport, including Gordon Benson, who won gold at last weekend’s 2013 Junior European Cup at Eton Dorney.
Brendan Purcell, Performance Director at British Triathlon, said: “Great Britain has junior and U23 athletes who are in a strong position on paper and have the experience behind them to use the home crowd to help lift their performances.
“We have prepared well and will pay attention to every detail so the focus in the lead up to next Thursday is about delivering their race processes and letting the outcome take care of itself.”
The junior and U23 athletes all compete on Thursday 12 September in Hyde Park, and all events are free-to-view. For a complete schedule of events, please see our Hyde Park Finals guide here.
