Snelling soars in Spain

13/06/2016

Weston Athletic Club member Paul Snelling has just earned himself a world title at the 2016 ITU Duathlon World Championships in Spain. The sprint event, which comprised a 5k run, a 20.5k bike ride and then a 2.5k run, attracted elite and age-group athletes from all over the world.

Paulís category featured athletes from across Europe, Canada, the USA and Australia. Paul put himself in a strong position right from the start, and although the 5k run was a tough one, he finished with a lead on the second placed competitor of well over a minute and a half.

He maintained his advantage over the hilly bike course before tackling the final run. It was here that he found a final burst of energy to increase his lead by a further two minutes.
