Mr Platts Wins Bronze in European Championships

On Saturday 27th October Mr Platts (Head of Year 9) raced at the European Aqua bike (Swim, Bike) Championships in Ibiza representing GBR Age-Group team.
The weather was very challenging with the course being flooded and the race being delayed and almost cancelled. Luckily the weather managed to clear but it made for a very dangerous bike course seeing lots of athletes come off their bikes.
Mr Platts finished the race in 3rd place making him the 3rd fastest in Europe in his Age-Group and 4th fastest Brit on the day. Mr Platts has now been provisionally selected to represent GBR at the World Aqua bike competition in May.
Mr Platts has a full diary of events both for GBR and personal challenges arranged for next year. Mr Platts would like to thank Robson & Co for their sponsorship to take part in events for GBR and would like to wish The Atlantic Avengers Trust the best of luck with their Atlantic rowing challenge ‘The Columbus Challenge’, if you would like to contribute to the AA challenge please follow the link
