Hundreds of entrants battled monsoon-like conditions at the British University, College and Schools Sprint Championships last weekend, with Cardiff Metropolitan Uni students Sam Wade and Zoe Thomas eventually taking individual honours. 


The morning’s racing started with glorious sunshine at St Mary’s Sports Centre in Calne, Wiltshire; unfortunately this proved to be the calm before the storm as 639 competitors took on the variable weather conditions from stormy to pure sunshine. 

The triathletes who started early managed to escape the worst of the weather with only a few minor puddles to avoid. The triathletes who started later were not as lucky.
