Josh Lewis - Confirmed Gold Coast 2018 selection

Guernsey Triathlon are delighted to announce the confirmed selection of Josh Lewis to race at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in April 2018.

Having achieved the 'A' standard required by finishing top 5 at two top level UK Sprint Distance draft legal races during the 2017 season, achieving (and exceeding) the required individual times for a 750 metre swim and 5k run Josh's achievements were first validated by the GCGA validation Committee, ratified by the Directors of GCGA then voted on by the GCGA Council. A public announcement was made to the local media at the Queen's Commonwealth Baton Relay celebration at Beau Sejour earlier this evening. 

Josh joins a small and elite group of Guernsey Triathletes who have represented their Island at the higest level.

We wish Josh all the best this coming winter in training and into the competition phase early next year.
