Today, 17 pupils from Years 5 & 6 took part in the first ever Brownlee Triathlon at the John Charles Centre for Sport! They swam 30m, cycled 1km and ran 400m. It has to be siad, we have some athletes here at St Joseph's! Everyone enjoyed the well organised event and had fun. The Brownlee Brothers were giving encouragement to the children both on the start line in the pool and at the finish line of the run, handing out medals. See below for the action shots!
Alistair Brownlee presented the children with a medal at the end of the event.
Meet the team - looking relaxed but actually quite nervous!
