The Wasleys Take On A Lockdown Triathlon Challenge

The Independent Schools Association’s National Triathlon is always a hotly contested event and one of the highlights of the year for our Foundation athletes. The competition takes place every May with participants from across the country. Of course, this year the event has been cancelled much to the disappointment of many of our athletes. So we were really delighted to hear, that determined not to miss out, two Foundation pupils organised their very own lockdown triathlon event!

On Sunday 3 May, Princethorpe’s Year 8, Kaena Wasley and Crackley Hall’s Junior 6, Soren Wasley swam, cycled and ran together, completing the distances for their age groups.

Kaena completed the TriStars 3 distances, swimming 300m, cycling 4km and running 3km, she completed the course in a very speedy 33 minutes and 52 seconds. For Soren it was the TriStars 2 event, he swam 200m, cycled 2km and ran 2km, in a super time of 24 minutes and 9 seconds.

A huge well done to the Wasley family who all took part in the triathlon alongside Kaena and Soren. We are very impressed with you all and it sounds like you had great fun.
