New Year's Day Triathlon, Edinburgh

01/01/2014

Sarah and Ross Queen braved the elements in Edinburgh on 1st January 2014 to compete in the very popular New Years Day triathlon...

Along with 350 other keen athletes, including the UK's 10k open water swimming champion Kerry Payne, they tackled the first stage which was a 400m swim held in the Commonwealth Pool. Both swam good times, with Sarah completing in 8m 05s, a minute ahead of Ross who was competing in his first triathlon.

Through transition and onto a punishing cycle section, which consisted of 3 very hilly, cold and windy circuits around Arthur's Seat. Ross came in on 44m 57s pulling 30 seconds back on Sarah. Onto the final discipline the run, once again round Arthur's Seat, but thankfully this time there was only one lap to negotiate.

At the finish only 9 seconds separated the two DRC athletes, but it was Sarah's experience in triathlons and in the transitions which gave her the very slight overall advantage on the day.

Both had a great New Years Day experience, finishing well in the top half of the field and one which provided them with some great motivation for the year to come.
