There was massive success for WaldenTRI as some of their squad took part in the World Duathlon Championship.

Five members of the Saffron Walden based triathlon club travelled to Romania for the world age-group event.

Craig Stewart and Craig Dyce competed in the standard distance (10k run, 40k bike, 5k run) around the Transylvania Motor Circuit.

Stewart finished 13th in his age category but Dyce took the lead on the first run and was never caught again, claiming the gold medal.

The sprint event was a 5k run, 20k bike and 2.5k run around Targu Mures town centre and mother and daughter, George and Innes Dunlop, as well as Dave Pulford and Dyce, took part.

In hot conditions the Dunlops raced strongly and in her first World Championship, 16-year-old Innes claimed silver.

George thought she had taken bronze in her group but a judge's call handed after the finish reinstated a French athlete into third spot,
