Wood receives third place in Sprint Distance Triathalon in European Championships
Tim Wood (R07), representing the age group 25-29 for the Great Britain Triathlon Team, has won bronze in the 750m swim, 20km cycle and 5km run-sprint. Competing against over 40 other competitors, Wood completed the triathalon in 01:05:47 with his swim taking 00:10:49, cycling at 00:33:18 and his sprint coming in at 00:18:13.
Wood also recently won Silver at the ITU Aquathlon World Championships in July. With such a successful season behind him, Tim Wood will also be competing in the Marathon des Sables, which is a grueling six-day, 251 km ultramarathon, approximately the distance of six regular marathons. The longest single stage is 91 km long, and it is held every year in southern Morocco, in the Sahara Desert.
Recent leaver Oscar Dalglish (S18) completed the Marathon des Sables (MdS) in April 2017 in aid of 'Walking with the Wounded’, a charity originally co-founded by his father and aiming to rehabilitate soldiers into a working healthy life.
