Having only competed in her first duathlon earlier this year, Gill Fullen from Thurleigh claimed her first gold at the ITU World Championship in France.

Competing in the 45-49 age section of the weekend’s championships, she finished the 10km run, 40km bike and 5km run in a time of 2.06.18hrs, faster than any other British age group lady and winning her section by a clear four minutes.

Fullen was thrilled to overcome the competition from Germany and the US and it comes as a real confidence boost before she travels out to Hawaii next week to take part in the Ironman Triathlon World Championships on Saturday.
