India Lee

European Triathlon Championships, Glasgow.

Yesterday, India Lee competed in the European Triathlon Championships in Glasgow.

Two years ago India became European Triathlon champion so today the Saucony Hurricane Team Member India Lee swam, biked and ran her way around Glasgow in a bid to reclaim her European crown. 

In the newly formatted European Championships, sports are split across two different host Cities; Glasgow and Berlin. Earlier in the week fellow Hurricane Ieuan Thomas stepped on to the track in the Olympic stadium, Berlin to compete in the 3000mSC but now the focus was on the 'home soil' of Glasgow.

After recent successes on the World Cup circuit and a 3rd place in Cagliari, Italy earlier in the season, Indie was looking to feature highly for in very competitive Great Britain team. Early on in the swim a breakaway formed and Indie found herself in a large 2nd group. The breakaway 3 were strong enough to fight it out amongst themselves for the medals with the 30 strong chase pack behind, being mostly lead by Indie, unable to work together and close the gap. Indie ran in to finish 21st overall and 2nd finisher for the strong GB team.

Well done Indie!
