Walden Tri athletes go from strength to strength with another set of impressive performances.
At the Half Ironman UK at Wimbleball, Exmoor, gutsy James Sheairs crossed the line after a 1.9 km swim, 90.1km bike and 21km run despite a major setback.
This premier race is a qualifying event for the World Championships in Clearwater, USA and had a strong international field.
On finding that he was without proper cycle shoes, Sheairs completed the tough bike course in trainers.
