Rich makes the GB cut

Dursley triathlete Rich Pitt had confirmation last week that his results at Nottingham and Chester were good enough to qualify him to represent GB at age group level (45-49) at the World Triathlon Championship finals in Edmonton Canada at the end of Aug.

Rich qualified for both the sprint and standard distances, but has opted to get his full money's worth and do the longer distance. Pronouncing himself 'pretty chuffed', he only registered to qualify to see where he had come, thinking he might have a chance next year when he hits the 50 to 54 category. Well done Rich - we're proud of you and can't wait to see the GB kit on a Tuesday night ...
