An intrepid Preparatory School triathlete gained a podium finish at a high-profile event recently.

Isabel Stubbings, a Year 5 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, added to her growing list of successes at the highly competitive Denbigh Junior Triathlon, which took place on Saturday, June 24.

The 10-year-old gave a very good account of herself once again, completing four laps of the swimming pool before embarking on a one kilometre bike ride and gruelling run in difficult conditions.

After a rousing and determined performance, the Prep School pupil crossed the line in third spot, earning her a trophy and medal to recognise her efforts.

Isabel also received a generous round of applause at Rydal Penrhos’ weekly Celebration Assembly, which was held on Friday, June 30.

This is the latest in a series of triumphs for the pupil, who gained respectable finish after taking part in a quarter mile open water swimming race on Lake Windermere, which was set up as part of the Great North Swim.

Prep School head Roger McDuff, said: “Isabel once again showed just how much potential she has in what was another eye-catching display, and everyone here at Rydal Penrhos is thrilled with her progression and overall performance.

“Triathlon is a sport very much on the up and with plenty of scope for improvement as she gains more experience, I am confident this will be just the start of Isabel’s success.”
