NEW Forest Cycling Club and Hardley Runners athlete Mick Anglim recently competed at two World Duathlon Championships in Aviles in Northern Spain.

Despite not winning a medal for the first time in eight years, the multiple world champion said he was pleased with his performances, knowing he would move into the M75 category from January.

The races were held on the waterfront setting of the iconic Oscar Niemeyer cultural centre with a riverside course for both run events.

On Saturday, in the sprint championship, Anglim came fifth in the M70 category after completing the 5k run, 20k undulating bike course, and 2.8k final run in 1:23:21.

Despite being the only M70 finisher to complete both races, he improved to fourth place in the much tougher standard distance championship on Sunday morning, finishing in 2:45:51. That event included a 10k run, a very hilly 40k bike course and a 5k final run.

Although there was no medal, his two results mean automatic qualification for GB in the M75 category for the 2022 World Duathlon Championship in the sprint and standard distance races.
