TEAM SPIRIT

Triathlon Plus - - Mail Box -

Ear­lier this year, I was lucky enough to have my let­ter – ask­ing for a swim­mer to join my re­lay team at the Brown­lee Tri – printed in your mag­a­zine (May edi­tion, is­sue 92).

I was thrilled when a young lady, An­drea Bowen, an­swered my cry for help. We had a great time at the event at Hare­wood House where An­drea swam, I did the cy­cle and my son, Lee, com­pleted the run.

We didn’t win but we weren’t last ei­ther! An­drea clocked up a PB time and was bril­liant. Alis­tair and Jonny Brown­lee spent the day sign­ing au­to­graphs, be­ing pho­tographed and chat­ting to ev­ery­one. What great am­bas­sadors they are – both for them­selves and the won­der­ful sport of triathlon.

Thank you for print­ing my let­ter way back then, and thank you to An­drea, Lee, Ali and Jonny for mak­ing the day great. Len (Charles) Cousens, Low­est­oft, Suf­folk Ed­i­tor says: Glad to have been of as­sis­tance, Len. Good luck for your 36th Lon­don Marathon. (Len is a mem­ber of the Ever Presents who have com­pleted ev­ery sin­gle Lon­don Marathon since it launched in 1981).
