Lankelma-sponsored Paratriathlete races twice in May

Adrian Heathfield
Lankelma-sponsored GB paratriathlete Adrian Heathfield competed in two ITU World Paratriathlon races in May: in Besançon, France on the 25th, and in London’s Hyde Park in London on the 31st.

Adrian came 11th out of 13 athletes in his category in Besançon. “This was the first time I had competed in this category of both arm and leg impairments and while the result wasn’t great, it wasn’t completely unexpected. I lost a lot of time in the transitions, which I can practice and improve upon, and the more races I do, the more my race fitness will return,” he said.

Six days later, in Hyde Park, Adrian finished 13th out of 18 athletes. This time the transitions were much smoother and despite feeling tired from France, Adrian felt his performance was a slight improvement.

“Racing in London is a great experience. I’m still way off where I need to be, and some small mistakes cost me dear, but the more I race, the more it will come together, along with my race fitness – onward and upward!”
