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!
