Tri coach Green in London finals
9:01am Tuesday 24th September 2013 in Sport
Shaun Green one of the coaches at Andover Triathlon Club (sponsored by Heritage VW Salisbury) recently competed in the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final Age Group in London representing GB.
Shaun is one of the club’s coaches and has also won both the champs and middle distance races this year.
The event was based in London’s Hyde Park, and consisted of a 1500m swim in the Serpentine followed by a 40km bike around the streets of London ending in a 10km run.
The swim was unfortunately shortened to 750m on the day following advice due to both the outside and water temperature and Green finished in 12:08, and with a swift transition he completed the bike section in 1:01:20.
A run in 42:45 gave him a total time including transitions of 2:02:13.
Green finished in an impressive 52nd from 163 finishers which is a fantastic achievement.
