Cameron inspiring next generation of young Triathlon hopefuls

A promising Triathlon star at Rydal Penrhos continued his encouraging return from injury with an eye-catching regional competition success.

Cameron Shaw, a Year 10 pupil at the school, was part of a large contingent that competed at the Conwy Tri-Stars Triathlon event, which took place in Mold on Sunday, September 9.

The 14-year-old demonstrated his outstanding talent by emerging victorious from the Tr-Stars 3 category in convincing style to further enhance his growing reputation as one of the best young prospects in the region and beyond.

This is the latest in a long line of accolades for 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.

In addition to his own exploits, Cameron has been training younger members of the Tri-Stars Conwy team during their Thursday evening sessions at Parc Eirias in Colwyn Bay, especially with their work in the swimming pool.

This includes Year 7 pupil Jaydon Blears, who also triumph from his age group at the Mold showcase.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “Not only is Cameron achieving a remarkable amount individually, but he is also displaying superb leadership skills to inspire the next generation of young triathletes in the area, which is equally as pleasing from our point of view here at Rydal Penrhos.”

“Cameron has worked very hard to overcome his injury problems and he has really hit the ground running since getting back to competitive action and hopefully this can give him an enormous amount of encouragement as he looks to rise up through the Welsh rankings once again.”
