Katie Ball takes on the European Triathlon Championships.

 

Saturday 27th October saw Boston Triathlon Clubs own Katie Ball represent GB at the ETU middle distance championships in Ibiza.

Katie qualified for the age-group event after finishing 2nd in her age-group at OSB Holkham in July last year and has been training for the distance in earnest since September 2017.

Ibiza comes after a strong season for Katie including competing at the ETU Sprint distance event at Glasgow in August.

Race day dawned cold and wet, then the thunder and lightning started.

Roads around the course were flooded delaying the start of the event and resulting in the bike leg being shortened.

After a tough event, in far from ideal conditions, Katie crossed the line 9th in her age group and 37th lady overall with a time of 3:47:24.
