World Age Group Duathlon Championships (25-29 years)
June 1st 2014 in Pontevedra, Spain
I qualified automatically to represent Great Britain in the World Age Group Sprint Duathlon Championships with a win in my first duathlon in Morpeth, Northumberland in April 2014.
The World Championships were held in Pontevedra Spain on June 1st 2014. This was my first major championship event and even with some intense training leading up to the event, the best I could hope for would be a bronze medal. The race went as well as it possibly could have, winning my age group by some 54 seconds to take the gold and become World Champion at the first time of asking.
This was my first major duathlon title and has been a turning point in my life.
