St Paul’s was represented by four students in the U16 age group: Oliver Larcombe, Isaac Reay, Matt Dawbin and Toby Finlayson. Their race consisted of a 500m swim; a 15k bike leg and a 3k run.

Oliver achieved our highest placing, finishing in 3rd (bronze medal); Isaac placed 7th closely followed by Toby in 8th and Matt finished in 10th place out of a field of 15.
