Emma Whitaker has recently been awarded a place on the Pentathlon England Talent Program, a major achievement. In this interview, Emma talks about how she got onto the program and what she hopes to achieve.
Well done to Ffion and Aimee who both completed the half mile at the Great North Swim. Aimee was on fire finishing in 12:06 (8th place out of 595), raising money for St Johns Hospice. JT coach Ian Probert completed the 2 mile event in 52.25 an amazing swim and fellow JT coach Andrew Richardson in 1.07:40. Well done also to all the parents who competed.
