Keith has come back from injury and shown the ‘youngsters’ in his AG that he’s not to be beaten and bagged himself a Gold (again) at the National Sprint Champs. He did this despite being kicked in the face twice at the start of the swim and running an amazing sub-20 5.3k, with a negative [...]
Pete finishes only 4.36 minutes behind the leader for an impressive Sprint result. After a great swim (2nd only to a dolphin, who did it in 06.04!) he managed to hold on to 4th overall, despite having to stop for traffic lights. He didn’t think he would have caught the 3rd place man anyway, so [...]
PATIENCE – It may sound counter-intuitive, but patience is what you need for a successful middle-distance tri. The patience to hold back just enough and save the legs for when they are really needed – here is my tale of the 2014 Swashbuckler Middle Distance Tri.
The day started well, I have a very good [...]
East Dorset Open Water SC Seahorse Swim – 22.06.14
Three zoomers made the short trip across the Sandbanks ferry to Knoll Beach for the annual seahorse swim. A civilised start time of 10am, meant no need to up at the crack of dawn, although the conditions were so perfect it was almost worth getting there [...]
Karl Bonner took this on and found the reputation of the event as one of the toughest IM 70.3 courses in the world for a good reason: “hills, hills & then a few more hills thrown in for good measure, in fact the swim is only flat thing on the course, a good choice then [...]
4 Zoomers entered this one and all getting amazing results. Pawel had the race of his lifetime, finishing in 4:25:41 and running the fastest run split of the day for the whole race in 1:22:04, which was just 12 seconds short of his HM PB! Amazing guys, well done!! Zoomers are taking the country by [...]
I did my first tri in early May at David Lloyd Ringwood; a sprint and starting very early I was very pleased to see Sarah Barrett in transition to chat me through set up. I had great swim around 8mins but slow t1 and bike split in 40.20mins. The course was slow, it went from [...]
Triathlon England had their Middle Distance Championships at Grafham Waters near Cambridge. Louella thought she was the only Zoomer there until she heard a ‘Go Zoom’ by what she thought was a ‘random’ on the bike (maybe he was admiring my new Zoom top she thought), until he stalked her on the run and shouted [...]
What an amazing experience! Pontevedra, Spain, is 2 hours north of Porto (Portugal) and is a small town near the coast, on the banks of a river. It was host to over 1500 athletes from all over the world, here for the ITU Elite, para duathlon, Junior, Age Group or Relay, sprint or standard duathlon [...]
Based next to Urban Reef in Boscombe this is a great local event with a series of 5 Sprints or Super Sprints. This event has seen many Zoomers cut their teeth in trying their first open water tri, whilst others use it as ideal sharpeners for upcoming events, and others do it just for fun! [...]
