Ruben tops off a great Summer of sport, to be selected for the British Triathlon South Central IRC team. Ruben placed 3rd South Central TS3 boy at the recent Eton Dorney event.
The IRC's comprise a weekend of racing by regional teams from throughout the UK at the British Triathlon U20's Festival. This years U20's Festival will take place on the Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th September at Mallory Park, Leicestershire.
Each region takes a team of 12 athletes from TriStar 2 and TriStar 3 categories (3 male and 3 female athletes from each age group) plus reserves.
This is a phenomenal achievement for Ruben, who has only competed in a handful of triathlons. Exiting the lake with a competitive swim, Ruben was down after the bike leg but overtook most of the field in the run to take 3rd.
