India is European Champion!

May 31, 2016

We are absolutely thrilled to congratulate India Lee who at the weekend become the elite European Triathlon Champion winning with a dominate performance in Lisbon.

 

Taking on a field full of top class athletes Indie came out of the water in 18th position before showing her incredible strength on the bike to hit the front alongside fellow GB elite, Lucy Hall to build a 90 second lead going into the run. Holding off the huge chasing field India won from Yuliya Yelistratova of the Ukraine and Zsofia Kovacs of Hungary to achieve the biggest win of her career to date.  This comes only a couple of weeks after winning the ITU World Cup race in Italy to establish India's name amongst some of the very best in European and World Triathlon. 

 

On Sunday India joined her team mates to win the team relay race joining Lucy Hall, Tom Bishop and Grant Sheldon to make it a golden weekend for GB in Portugal. 

 

There are some great write ups on the race from the ETU;
