Having watched the professionals in action at the European Triathlon Championships in Glasgow last week, on Saturday it was the turn of GOG triathlete Paul Algieri to race alongside Europe’s finest age group triathletes at Strathclyde Park. Paul was taking on the sprint distance triathlon which comprised of a 750m swim, 20km bike and 5km run. He had a strong swim, exiting the water in 11.56 in second place. The bike course was a hilly 3 lap circuit with only 1km per lap of flat terrain but he dealt well with the challenging course coming off the bike 10th in 37.10. Despite struggling with a recent injury he still managed a 24.10 5km run. His combined efforts saw him finish in 25th place overall in a time of 1.17.49, a fantastic result considering this was his first time competing at this level.
