The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and upcoming Paralympic Games have the power to inspire many inside and outside of the sport of triathlon. The GO TRI Active taster session at Nantwich is a great opportunity to take that inspiration and use it to give swim, bike, run a go.
Medals from Alex Yee, Georgia Taylor-Brown, Jonny Brownlee and Jess Learmonth, and the overall togetherness of the triathlon team that travelled to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games showcased the joys of multisport at the highest level.
Triathlon is a sport that can be enjoyed by people of all abilities and backgrounds, from entry level taster sessions to racing for the Great Britain Age-Group Team and beyond, there’s a swim, bike and run for everyone.
Following his individual silver medal on his Olympic debut, Alex Yee said: “I still feel like a normal boy from south east London. I hope I can serve as inspiration to people to show this is possible. I’m not anything special, I just really enjoy sport and have been really lucky.”
The GO TRI Active taster session will take place on Saturday 4 September, running in partnership with Nantwich Tri Club in the build up to the North West Triathlon event based in the local area.
