“I got my taste for triathlon earlier this year when I teamed up and took on the sprint distance relay, but now I’m ready for the full swim, bike, run experience. I’m really excited to get going with my training and seeing who will join me on the start line next June to be part of my wave!” Becky Adlington, Double Olympic Swimming Champion
