Georgia Defends European Junior Title
Georgia Taylor Brown retained her individual ETU European Junior Triathlon title in Alanya, Turkey last week and was also part of the successful GB team to also win their second team medal in two years. It's been an awesome year for the club's prestigious talent, coached in her running by Paul Roden. She adds this latest major European title and several other international triathlon titles and medals to her Northern U20 Cross-Country title and IAAF cross country medal with the Great Britain Athletics team last winter
This victory is especially sweet for Georgia in that she's retained her title despite losing a significant amount of training through injury after winning her cross-country medal with the GB team. She said: "It's amazing to retain the title! I tried not to think about it coming into the race as I find it puts too much pressure on. I had a great bike. I stayed at front and did a lot of work because I knew there were some good runners in the second group."
