TRIATHLETE Damon Turner secured a respectable finish at the European Triathlon Long Course Championships last month.

The athlete and coach, who is part of the Tuff Fitty Triathlon Club, was selected for the Great Britain team for the championships, in Finland, and he finished in 13th position in his age category.

Turner completed the gruelling 4k swim, 120k bike ride and 30k run in 7hrs 13mins.

He said: “It was one of the toughest races I have ever done but being part of the Great Britain team was an incredible experience”

The Worthing-based athlete may now have to do it all again as he has been offered a place on the team at the forthcoming World Championships, in Las Vegas, in November.

He is currently looking for a main kit sponsor and if any local businesses would be interested in sponsoring him, he can be contacted on 07921 810834.
