Do3 continue to secure Championships qualifications - Weekend round up 29th – 30th September 2018
Seanin Gilmore of Warwickshire’s Do3 triathlon squad was again in flying form at the weekend. Racing at Oulton Park Duathlon she was first in her age group and 5th female overall and secured herself a place at next year’s ETU Championships which will be hosted in Romania.
Seanin completed the 8.6km run, 38.8km cycle and final 4.3km run in a time of 02:04:10. The duathlon win concludes an impressive year for the athlete who earlier in the season was 7th in the world at the ITU Duathlon World Championship.
Mike Davis also raced in Do3 colours in Portugal at Ironman 70.3 Cascais. He concluded the 1.9km swim, 90km bike and 21.1km run in a time of 5:40:26 while a dozen of Do3’s squad started their taper in readiness for the Warwickshire Triathlon on October 7th.
Dave Knight, Do3’s head coach said, ‘Seanin has trained hard throughout the season and gaining a place at the European Championships is a just reward. We have the upcoming 2018 ETU Championships in Ibiza at the end of October where a dozen of the squad will compete at middle distance. And closer to home it’s the highlight in the local race calendar, The Warwickshire Triathlon. The squad has done our headline sponsor Helix Sports proud this year and underlined our shared ethos that hard work and perseverance pay off’.
Do3 is mentored and managed by Dave Knight, one of the UK’s leading triathlon coaches and Coach of the Year at Stratford District Council Sport Awards. The squad is made up of over 200 Midlands-based athletes; from triathlon enthusiasts and age group competitors to professional athletes.
