At the recent 2018 Glasgow ETU Triathlon European Championships, OUTriC member David Pearson experienced massive success, winning a silver medal in the 20-24 age group sprint distance race. This was a very meaningful achievement for David who unfortunately experienced a nasty crash and ended up in hospital after competing in the previous year in the same event in Düsseldorf.
David expressed delight at his achievement, stating 'From lying in a hospital bed after Düsseldorf 2017 to a silver medal in my age group at Glasgow European Sprint Championships 2018 - it was a great day at the office - enough motivation to keep me going till next year'.
After experiencing a very successful year in triathlon, winning the varsity race and attaining a full blue, David has now graduated with a first in biological sciences. As he leaves the club, we wish him all the best for his future in triathlon.
