Isobel wins Hillingdon Grassman Triathlon
On Sunday 5th May, Year 8 student Isobel won the 11-14 age group category at the Hillingdon Triathletes' Grassman Triathlon in Uxbridge.
The Grassman is an introductory sprint triathlon held once a year by Hillingdon Triathletes. The competition consists of a 250m swim followed by a 300m run to bike transition, a 6km bike course on grass and then back to transition to finish with a 1.6km run, also on grass. Isobel completed the course in a fantastic 27.02minutes!
Isobel is a competitive club swimmer with Watford swimming club, which has helped with her stamina and endurance, and is doing very well with her running too.
Sporting success runs in the family as Isobel's grandfather Charlie Townsend was a successful amateur footballer who played for Great Britain, along with celebrated Old Dane Hugh Murray Lindsay (who attended the school at its previous Hammersmith location.)
Congratulations to Isobel on her success, and we wish her continuing success in her future events.
