AT THE recent end-of-season North West Triathlon Association presentation, young triathlete Liam McGuinness, 16, gained both Winter and Summer Championship trophies.

After a long year, consisting of both a winter and summer series of events, Liam (pictured) showed commitment and perseverance, winning five of eight events including two duathons (run, bike, run), one aquathlon (swim, run) and five triathlons (400 metre swim, 9k cycle, 3k run) at different locations around the North West, on occasion showing courage to get back on his bike after crashing and also pulling back long leads from national swimmers to overtake and win on the run sections.

Liam also represented the North West for the third year running at the National Inter Regional Youth Championships in Wales.

Liam would like to thank his dad, the Colt Youth Development Squad sponsors, Technology Farm Limited,Carnforth Otters Swimming Club and Lancaster and Morecambe AC for their coaching and support.
