Gunby guided to be success

Have your say

BARNACK’s Matt Gunby has moved from the Tri-Gold programme to the Olympic Foundation Squad for 2012.

Matt is one of just 25 athletes that the British Triathlon Federation are grooming for success in the next few years leading to the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

He will be based at the BTF Centre of Excellence in Loughborough.

The selection is a reward for Matt, who has worked hard with the privately backed The Tri-Gold programme.

l JON Crowley, Paul Vernon and Mark Ingram represented PACTRAC (Peterborough Area Combined Traithlon and Athletics Cub) in the Trailplus Adventure Challenge Series in Cannock Chase.

The distances were a 15-mile mountain bike, a seven-mile off-road run and a 1,000m kayak on a river.

Teams had to stay together at all times during the race, and had to cross the finish line as a team with the clock stopping when the last team member crossed the finish line.
