Triathlon Triumph for Prep Pupils
Year 6 athletes Olivia Corner and Lucia Mosca run, cycle and swim their way to success!
Prep athletes Olivia Corner and Lucia Mosca (both Year 6) ran, cycled and swam their way to success at the second National Prep Schools’ IAPS Triathlon recently.
The event, hosted by Dulwich Prep School, attracted some 375 competitors in Years 5-8 from across the country. The girls' race involved a 200m open air swim, a 3.6km cross-country bike ride and an 1.8km run.
On this occasion the weather forecasters had correctly predicted rain, which only emphasised the battling spirit of our girls. In a strong field of 53, Lucia finished a superb 11th (finish time 0:20:02) whilst Olivia produced a fantastic performance to win the event by 12 seconds from her nearest rival, in 0:17:51.
Well done to both of you!
