Sue Bathgate of Cheltenham Triathlon club continued her impressive season with another win in the super-vets category at the local Bredon Hardwick sprint triathlon last weekend.
An impressive turnout from Cheltenham Triathlon club despite the holiday season made for a bit of a party atmosphere at the event, with 19 members of the club making the short trip to compete over the 750 metre Open Water Swim - 20 kilometre Bike - 5 kilometre Run course.
With Sue Bathgate first in the ultra-vets category and Elaine Edgeworth second in the super-vets (slightly younger) it could be said that Cheltenham are starting to get a reputation for running away with the veteran prizes, but the youngsters from the club are also doing well.
Oliver Hilton came 16th overall in an impressive 1 hour, 7 mins, 22 seconds, with Andy Monaghan coming 32nd, 4 minutes behind. Paul Wakefield and Kevin Ord both did well in the Vets category (4th and 11th respectively) in 01:08 and 01:16 respectively.
Karen Hilton in her first Triathlon of the season came a creditable 8th in the vets category in 01:27 and Lesley Oliver came back to triathlon after a season's break to achieve 22nd in the open category in 01:31.
Other finishers from the club were Will Amies (01:16:23), Graham Johnston (01:16:49), Anthony Lloyd (01:18), Steve Yarnold (01:24), James Kearney 01:28, Colin Watkins (01:28), Cathy Booth (01:34), Cameron Pay (01:36), Brian Bathgate (01:36) Helen Yarnold (01:56). Jason Humm also took part but was DQd for missing a lap on the run.
