We are half way through the triathlon season and our sponsored triathlon squad, HartreeJETS, are already achieving amazing results.
The squad was set up to support some of the best age-group and developing elite level triathletes in Scotland, totalling 13 at the moment. Since the HartreeJETS launch day last year and under the leadership of chief coach Joel Enoch, there have been some remarkable achievements.
Eight members of the squad have qualified for the 2015 World Championships to be held on 18 – 21 September in Chicago including Scott Thomson, Martin Gore, Alice Jenkins, Keira Murray, Gill Hislop, Joe Tomaney, Gerry Cameron and Craig Goldie. Hartree Estates congratulates these triathletes on being selected as it is a great honour to be competing for GB.
Other achievements include six qualifications for the 2016 European Championships in Lisbon, and a number of individual podium positions in key triathlons throughout the UK including 1st overall at the Gala Sprint Triathlon (Martin Gore) and 2nd overall (Scott Thomson), 1st female New Forrest Triathlon (Alice Jenkins), 1st female Peebles Sprint Triathlon (Gill Hislop) and 1st overall (Joe Tomany), and 2nd in age group in her first half Ironman race in Barcelona (Keira Murray).
Full marks must go to the squad coach, Joel Enoch, who has brought great expertise, energy, and passion to his squad and we wish them the best of luck for the rest of season and in particular at the world championships later in the year.
