Sheweet warned that she was not racing today’s Olympic Challenge at the Virgin Triathlon, but she promised she would complete the event at all costs. Unflinchingly she started by plunging into the Victoria Docks cold, murky waters and swam the 1500 m single lap in what appeared to be no time, then quickly transitioned to the 40K bike challenge (2 laps). The weather began to turn and the wind was against her towards the end of the ride, but she triumphed. The heightened wind and the on-off rain did not deter Sheweet from completing the final harrowing 10K run (4 laps), with a smile!
Well done Sheweet for being our pioneer in this field.
