New English national champions were crowned at the 2022 Triathlon England Aquathlon Championships where 23 Triathlon England titles were awarded across the age groups in swim and run.
Sywell Aquathlon in Northamptonshire was the host venue, with over 80 athletes completing the 750m open water swim and then a 5km run around the lake providing a picturesque setting for the medal presentations.
Medals were awarded to the top-three Triathlon England members across the line in each age group, with Benjamin Sommerville one of the fastest to complete the course to win gold for the second successive year following his victory in the male 20-24 age group last year.
Twelve months later and having now stepped up to the age group above, it was still the top step of the podium for Sommerville who secured the national title in the male 25-29 age group. The gold in the women’s equivalent went to Brittany Tate, who was the second fastest overall in the sprint aquathlon in Sywell.
The honour of being the fastest female went to Amy Walker who also became English champion in the female 35-39 age group, with Jonathon Clarke picking-up gold in the male equivalent.
Golds in the 20-24 age groups went to Eden Schiller and Ben Allen, with Charlotte Macey taking the title in the female U20 age group.
Nicky Savill and Alejandro Romero are the English champions in the female and male 30-34 age groups, respectively. The 40-44 winners were Louise Whittaker and Pip Bennett, while Jenny Fowler and Clark Schofield ended the day on the top step of the podium in the 45-49 age groups.
There were also national titles won by Elizabeth Taylor and Roger Fairhurst in the 50-54 category, while 55-59 age group golds were earned by Sharon Hill and Mark Scott.
It was a successful day for both Julie Robertson and Stuart Geggie as they became English 60-64 champions, while Neil Arundel again claimed the male 65-69 national title with Anne Hughes winning gold in the female equivalent.
Philip Kidd and Michael Smallwood earned the honour in the 70-74 and 75-79 age groups, respectively.
