British Youth and Junior Championships Announced

BTF announce dates for 2011 British Youth and Junior Triathlon Championships

British Triathlon has announced the 2011 British Youth and Junior Triathlon Championships will take place on 4 and 5 June as part of the GE Blenheim Triathlon.

The announcement adds additional prestige to what is one of the favourite events on the triathlon calendar and the second event of the 2011 British Triathlon Super Series.

The event which is also the third of the British Triathlon Youth and Junior Super Series will bring together some of the most promising talent from across the UK, providing a world class environment to prepare our future Olympic hopefuls.

Last year saw Sky Draper win the British Youth Championships at the GE Parc Bryn Bach Triathlon, which ultimately helped her clinch the overall British Triathlon Youth Super Series title. Liam Lloyd won the boy’s event on home soil in Wales.

The 2010 British Junior Championships was won by an impressive Tom Bishop who followed up his silver at the Junior World Championships with the title. The women’s Junior Championships became a battle of the Lucy’s, with Lucy Hall taking gold, with Lucy Smith second and Lucy Chittenden in third, the latter two found themselves on the podium for the Junior Super Series just moments later.
