    Default Flying stride

    Went to watch my daughter Poppy compete in St Anne's Triathlon today. She has moved up an age category this year and now races against kids up to 12 when she is only 10. Posting this one as it is her approach to the finish line and her stride was massive.



    She won it quite convincingly.

    Careful, they'll be testing her for EPO if she carries on like that!
    Great result.

    They have a nasty habit of doing that mate. She does work hard.
