TRIATHLON: King’s Lynn Triathlon Club member Chris Workman has been selected to compete for Great Britain in the 2014 European Championships Sprint Triathlon. 

Workman, 26, will don a GB trisuit in Kitzbuhel, Austria in June and is hoping to qualify for the 2014 World Championships in Canada.

He said: “I’m thrilled that I qualified as it’s been my goal all season and it’s not a bad result for my first year of competing.

The physical technical instructor for secure mental health services in Norwich, where he helps to rehabilitate people back into the community by accessing local fitness services in the city, has enjoyed an incredibly successful season with some great results – typically finishing in the top 10 individually and boasting a top five finish as part of a team in the tough national club relays competition.

Workman is seeking sponsorship to help him fund his training, equipment and travel to the championship events.

Any local businesses interested in sponsoring him and benefiting from publicity for their company at this high level, can contact him 0777 2210842 or email Chris.h676@hotmail.co.uk
