Nina and Morvern on aquathlon podium

GTC youngsters Nina Padmanabhan and Morvern Smith were delighted to make it on to the podium in the recent Go Swim Loch Lomond Junior Aquathlon.

Although the number of entries in this race were low, everyone knows you need to be in it to win it.

The junior aquathlon comprised a 250m swim and 2km run. It was open to athletes aged 11 to 14.

Nina was second in 17:09 while Morvern was just behind in 17:34.

Nina said: “I loved the atmosphere and it was nice to be part of a big event and it was nice to race with Morvern.

“It was fun to race in open water because there are very few open water events in my age group.  The water wasn’t too cold!”
