Recent events

On 22nd October 2012 I raced in the Barefoot & Thompson Paratriathlon World Grand Final, in Auckland, New Zealand. The race had a record 108 para-athletes competing. My category, Tri 3, had 10 athletes on the start line, participating from Great Britain, Spain, Italy, France and USA. I finished 7th in this race.
