GTN's European Triathlon Champion! | Heather's Race Vlog

Published on August 26th 2018


I headed north to Glasgow for the ETU European Sprint Triathlon Championships and this time it wasn’t purely for work, I was actually racing too. Follow my build up and race day experience as I represent Great Britain for the first time ever in triathlon. Subscribe to GTN: Check out the GTN Shop: Rewind to a few months earlier; I entered my first sprint triathlon, in Nottingham, UK. (Yes admittedly I’ve done things backwards with a full IM last year.) This was a European qualifying event and winning my age group gave me the opportunity to represent my country at the European Championships. With the European’s being hosted in Glasgow, Scotland I jumped at the chance of wearing my first ever GB tri suit and competing on home soil in the UK. And then there was the added bonus of having the professional European Triathlon Championships taking place alongside, so plenty of opportunities to learn from the pros. I flew up North a few days earlier to get some videos filmed with GTN as well as starting my race day preparation. During this vlog I share my thoughts and feelings on the build up; starting from my arrival, to the building of my bike, the course recce, as well as my expectations. Then it’s on to race day where I share the preparation right from my waking moment up to the race start. Following that of course there’s the race itself and I finish off my bringing you my round up on what turned out to be an emotional but hugely successful day.
