Team Bodyworks XTC athletes had another successful race at the Worthing Triathlon last weekend.

They raced over the Olympic distance of 1500m swim, 40km cycle and 10km run.

Yvette Grice followed up her recent victory in Bedford by leading out the swim with intent and recording the fastest swim of all, including the male athletes, and maintained this lead throughout to finish and take the win in a time of 2 hours 8 minutes.

This was also enough to win the Men vs Women race and become the first female winner at this event.

Following a return to racing after injury, Faye McClelland also had a strong race finishing second in her age group and sixth overall in a time of 2 hours 27 minutes.

With no Triathlon in the Paralympics until Rio in 2016, McClelland will now turn her focus to retaining her World Para Triathlon title in Auckland, New Zealand in October.

A fine performance from Beth Hall, despite a puncture competing in her first ever Olympic distance triathlon, rounded off a good day for Team Bodyworks.
