Cameron gears up for Welsh Development Pathway tilt with Chester Junior Triathlon win

A talented Triathlete geared up for his tilt at a national squad selection with another regional competition success.

Cameron Shaw, a Year 10 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, competed at the Chester Junior Triathlon on Sunday, September 23 at Christleton Sports Centre, and he turned in another fabulous display to enhance his growing reputation on the youth circuit.

The 14-year-old was in superb form throughout the North West series event, recording the fastest times in swim, cycle and running categories to secure a comfortable victory in the face of some stern competition.

He will now begin preparations ahead of the Welsh Development Pathway trials, which are scheduled to be held in the coming weeks.

The Tri-Stars Conwy squad member, who was ranked third in Wales within his age group prior to an injury suffered earlier in the year, has also been inspiring the next generation of Triathletes within the squad during their Thursday evening sessions at Parc Eirias in Colwyn Bay, especially with their work in the swimming pool.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “Cameron continues to show why he is regarded as such a fantastic young talent, and he has worked immensely hard in his own time and with our dedicated Strength and Conditioning team to get back to his very beat after a frustrating time with injury.

“This performance will stand him in extremely good stead as he looks to earn a spot on the Welsh Development Pathway, and we wish him the very best of luck with his preparations.”
