Triath­lete Gor­don Ben­son takes yet anoth­er vic­to­ry and is called up to rep­re­sent GB at World Championships.

Gor­don was part of the Great Britain Male Youth Triathlon Team who won a gold medal at the Euro­pean Youth Relays in Tours, France. The event was a back to back triathlon relay’ (each ath­lete com­petes a full triathlon) and Gor­don took the last leg of three tak­ing the team from fifth to first. He lat­er claimed it was one of the hard­est races he had ever com­pet­ed in!

Fur­ther­more, Gor­don has now been select­ed to rep­re­sent Great Britain at Triathlon (junior lev­el) at the World Cham­pi­onships in Bei­jing in Sep­tem­ber. He is the youngest mem­ber of the 21 triath­letes select­ed, the team includes world cham­pi­ons Alis­tair and Jonathan Brown­lee and all the oth­er top names from Great Britain.
