City of Leeds Swimmer and International Triathlete Gordon Benson claims two silvers in major european events.
After a crash in an event in Paris where fortunately he sustained only superficial injuries, 17 year old Gordon Benson went on to win two international silver medals. The first was in the European Triathlon Cup in Echternacht, Luxembourg and the second in the 3000m at the European Youth Olympics in Trabzon, Turkey.
On top of all this, upon his return to the UK, Gordon won gold in the British Junior Aquathlon Championships in London finishing over 20 seconds ahead of his nearest rival!
Well done Gordon!
