Paratriathlon: the ultimate guide

In total the team delivered seven podium finishes in Portugal with Faye McClelland (PT4) and Melissa Reid (PT5) winning silver medals and Joe Townsend (PT1) securing bronze.

Andrew Lewis (PT2) who also won the 2016 Penrith ITU World Paratriathlon Event in April, secured his first European title: “It was amazing, I couldn’t really dream of anything better really, I am European Champion! I followed everything my coach told me to do and followed all the processes and everything went to plan,” he said.

Jonathon Riall, Head Coach of the Great Britain Paratriathlon Team said “Everything we wanted to achieve here in Lisbon, we delivered. I couldn’t be happier with the performance of the team. In every category we have athletes who have moved massive steps forward. We had athletes contesting six categories and we delivered four gold medals. We still have two races left before the qualification window closes for Rio, so everyone is now fully focused on the Strathclyde and Besancon events in June.”
