Helen Russell

Marlbrook triathlete Helen Russell has won gold in the European Sprint Triathlon Championships. 

Europe’s best amateur triathletes assembled in the Turkish resort of Alanya to battle over the 750m sea swim, 20km bike and 5km run.

Russell, who regularly trains on the Lickey Hills, covered the 5km run in 19.25 – the fastest run leg of the day – and her final time of 1.03.36 saw her crowned European Champion in the 35-39 age category.

This means she has now won international gold in both triathlon and duathlon.

Her next goal is to take gold in the World Aquathlon Cham-pionship in London in September.
