Next race for me was London relays, with LTPC. We were lucky to have two really strong teams entered for this, where my team finished 5th and the other LTPC team got a podium 2nd place. Like
last year, the relay cup is always good fun and its nice to be able to give back to and represent the centre you train at.
The next European triathlon cup I had in store was in Hungary, in Szekesfehervar. After a solid result in Weert, I was really hoping to improve on my 5th place and hope to get a podium. I committed to the race and put myself in contention but I just missed out and came 4th (got the chocolate medal). I was pleased with this, especially as a first year under 23, so there is more to come for sure.
At the beginning of the season I didn't have World champs as one of my main aims as I didn't think I would be selected, so when I got the email saying that I had qualified I was really over the moon. The experience out in Australia was amazing and I was pleased that I managed to lead out of the water. The overall result I wasn't overly please with, finishing 23rd, but considering I didn't think I would even be there, I can't complain.
