Congratulations to Geography teacher, Ben Price, who recently finished 15th in the European Duathlon Championships in Germany. Representing Great Britain in his first ever elite level Duathlon, Ben completed the gruelling course of a 10k run, followed by a 63k bike and then a second 10k run in just three hours and 11 minutes.

At the first transition he was among the top 10 athletes including one other GB athlete. Ben said: “I’ve never felt pain like that in a race before! It was like a slow motion race by the end, all of the athletes were holding back cramp and pain from other injuries.” Undeterred by this incredibly tough event, Ben hopes to get back on the course very soon but for now is taking a well-deserved break. Well done Mr Price!
