As you have probably heard (as I have posted it all over Twitter and FB!), I got some pretty big news last week.
When I competed at the British Triathlon Championships a few weeks ago, I was told I had got first place, then they changed it to third place, then when I went up onto the podium, I was second. It was all a bit confusing, but I was delighted that I had come 2nd.
Then whilst I was in Portugal, I met the girl that had 'beaten me' into first place. However, she hadn't competed in the British Triathlon Champs at all and had informed British Triathlon of that fact when she had heard (thankyou to her for being so honest).
.................................Therefore I am the British Sprint Triathlon Champion.
Finally, after weeks of waiting, I have received my medal. Granted, receiving it through the post wasn't as grand as standing on the actual podium, but I am SO happy to have the honour of saying that I am the British Triathlon Champion 2016!
