On Sunday 14th June, Bishop’s Stortford swimmer Emma Deary (27) competed in the Deva Triathlon in Chester. This acted as the English National Championships and a qualifier for the 2015 ITU World Championships and 2016 ETU European Championships. In an event where over 1300 athletes took part, Emma found herself competing against some of the toughest competition in the UK, and the BSSC Masters squad swimmer came away with a superb result.
Emma finished 4th overall out of the females competing and 2nd in her age group category, an outstanding achievement against some top class National Competition (the winner of Emma’s age category won a silver medal at last year’s World Championships). She managed to get a pb on the swim and the run, and the signs are positive for the ETU European Championships, which takes place in 4 weeks’ time in Geneva. Emma is currently finalising her preparations for Geneva and we wish her the very best of luck.
