Local Triathlete Lizzy Edge has been selected to represent GBR at the Junior European Championships following a string of fine performances.
Recently, she finished 2nd in the British Triathlon Junior Super Series (GBR selection race) in Llanelli making it her third podium of the season. The first two podiums were a 2nd place finish in European Junior Triathlon Cup in March and a 1st place the British Triathlon Performance Assessments in April.
Lizzy lives in Gamston and is currently taking her A levels at Rushcliffe School 6th form. She has been competing for GBR since 2019, where she made her debut at the Youth European Champs in Austria, finishing 10th in the final.
She is a member of the England Triathlon squad and East Midlands Triathlon Academy. She trains locally at Nottingham Uni, East Leake and at David Lloyd West Bridgford.
Lizzy’s focus this season is to do more racing in Europe as a key development aim (having missed a lot of racing due to Covid restrictions over the last 2 seasons) and to gain selection for the Junior World Championships in Canada. To help achieve her goals, she is looking for local sponsors to support her training, competitions and ambitions.
