More than 500 British triathletes crossed the Channel for last weekend’s Chateau de Chantilly Triathlon in the Picarde region of France, including recently-crowned British Middle Distance champion Fraser Cartmell.
Cyril Viennot led the French team out, ably assisted by Victor Debil-Caux, Tony Baheux and Julie Nivoux. Racing for Team GB, Cartmell was accompanied by Mark Threlfall, David Bishop and Catherine Jameson.
After a fierce struggle Cyril Viennot won first place in the Olympic distance race with a time of 1:58:30, leaving Team GB’s Fraser Cartmell to take silver.
On to the women’s race and Catherine Jameson did Team GB proud with an excellent win in 2:14:54, finishing ahead of Sylvie Brun and Rachel Hallam.
