Sky Draper and Tom Bishop capped a memorable year at the British Triathlon Annual Awards being named British Triathlon Female and Male Junior Triathlete of the year.
Sky Draper from London was the comprehensive winner of the British Triathlon Youth Super Series, winning each of the four races in which she competed including the final at the GE Parc Bryn Bach Triathlon.
Sky was also successfully selected onto the GE Great Britain Team for the 2010 Vila Nova de Gaia ETU Triathlon U23 and Youth European Championships in Portugal. The women’s Youth relay team finished fourth, just missing out on a podium position.
Sky commented: “I am really, really honoured to win. I wasn’t expecting it actually, there were some really good girls nominated. [I am] really happy, it’s amazing.”
Tom Bishop from Derby has also had a successful year, beginning the season with a bronze in the ETU Duathlon European Championships in Nancy and progressing onto a silver in the Junior ITU Triathlon World Championships in Budapest.
As well as international success, Tom won the British Triathlon Junior Super Series, similar to Sky winning every junior race in which he competed.
After receiving his award, Tom said: “This award was good and caps off a successful season. This is the first awards I have been to and it’s really impressive the amount of people to cheer you on, its good the way British Triathlon back you.”
