Youth and Junior Super Series to draw to a close at the Grand Final

Published:

Taking place on Saturday 11 September, the Super Series Grand Final is the final event of the British Triathlon Youth and Junior, Senior and Para Super Series’ where the overall champions will be crowned.

This is the second event that will take place at Mallory Park in Leicestershire as part of the 2021 Youth and Junior Super Series with races at the venue having already been run in August.

Three events had already occurred on the series before the Mallory double-header, with athletes either competing in a Youth A, Youth B or Junior series depending on their age.

The series started with parallel aquathlon events, one taking place in Lochore, Scotland and the other in Bowood, England. These swim-run events provided opportunities for the athletes to start the Super Series year and get points on the board.

Millie Breese (Lochore) and Antonia Jubb (Bowood) took the maximum 2,500 points in the Youth Female races, whilst Rory Bryant (Lochore) and Joshua Cumberland and Joshua Prendergast (tied at Bowood) won the male races in the age group.

Winning the Youth B races were Anna Hedley (Lochore) and Issy Hayes (Bowood), with Rhys Ashton (Lochore) and Daniel Galloway (Bowood) also taking the win. The Junior aquathlons were won by Jessica Turnbull and Joe Sherman (Lochore) and Lizzy Edge and Ryan Symington (Bowood).

Following the aquathlon events, the series moved onto the Performance Assessment Weekend which took place at Nottingham University and Prestwold Racing Circuit in July.

Usually the first event on the series, the format saw the athletes complete a swim time-trial before a separate bike-run event the following day, with the start times determined by the swim results. The athletes were set off from T1 before completing the bike and run, with the race a first to the finish following the staggered start.

The third event of the series took the athletes to Hetton for draft-legal racing, with the event also hosting the Senior Super Series too. The athletes competed in heats and finals, with junior and senior athletes competing together and youth A and youth B athletes competing together.

After the racing in Hetton, Megan Hornung (Youth A Female), Rory Bryant (Youth A Male), Beth Cook (Youth B Female), Struan Bennet (Youth B Male), Lizzy Edge (Junior Female) and Dominic Coy (Junior Male) led their respective Youth and Junior Super Series standings ahead of the two remaining events at Mallory Park.

The first of these was a two-day event that once again brought together the Youth and Junior Super Series and the Senior Super Series for a day of individual racing on Tuesday 10 August followed by mixed relay racing the next day.

The individual races contributed towards the Super Series rankings, with the current standings heading into the Grand Final available on the button below. The standings are based on the best two results on the series so far, with the final results for determining the series champions being calculated from their best three results.
