PUBLISHED: 18:00 10 June 2015
WaldenTri athlete Andy Bryant managed a top 15 place at the European Middle Distance Championships in Rimini, Italy.
As part of a 190-strong British team, Bryant finished 15th in the 50-54 age group. He was the fifth Brit to cross the line.
Sea conditions were challenging, with a strong swell making buoy-sighting difficult and the bike route climbed high into the Emilia-Romagna mountains, encountering heavy rain and patchy road surfaces.
The run was Bryant’s highlight of the race, posting a 1 hour 36 minute half marathon time to finish the triathlon in 5 hours 33 minutes overall.
Bryant’s result is sufficient to qualify for next year’s age-group championships, to be held in Austria.
