Tom achieves gold at British Triathlon School Youth Games
Year 11 pupil, Tom Hattee, alongside his team, has swam, cycled and ran his way to victory, winning Triathlon gold for the East Midlands in the British Triathlon School Youth Games, held in August this year.
Against tough competition in the National Super Series Race held in Llanelli last May, Tom was selected for the East Midlands Squad, going on to compete against 11 other regional teams in the British Triathlon School Youth Games, held in Parc Bryn Bach, Wales.
The School Youth Games, funded by the Sports Youth Trust, takes a dual-focus approach with its athletes, facilitating competition whilst providing education surrounding performance athletics for both parents and pupils.
Justin Hattee, Tom’s Father, commented: “Tom has been his usual intense and committed self this season, but he is still surprised to be part of such a successful team in his first season in the National Super Series racing.”
