World Duathlon Championships await Perse pupil after GB call-up

23 Mar 2018

Lotti Knights (Year 10) has been called up to the Great Britain U20 team for the next two editions of the ITU Sprint Distance Duathlon World Championships.

This year’s worlds in duathlon – a sport combining two runs either side of a cycling leg – take place in Fyn, Denmark, in July, while next year’s event is being held in Pontevedra, Spain.

Lotti was named in the squad for both competitions after finishing third in the 15 to 19 year old age group in the qualifying event at Bedford Autodrome with a time of 1hr 4min 33sec following a 5km run, a 20km cycle section and a 2.5km run.

Her latest success follows on from recently making it into the GB age group team for the ITU European Sprint Distance Championships, which take place in Ibiza in October.

Listen to Lotti talk more about her training regime and sporting aims below.
