A TEENAGER from Anglesey recently represented Wales in a Triathlon competition.

Osian Perrin, 15, finished in 13th place overall at the School Games National Finals held at Loughborough University last week.

Osian, who attends St. Gerard's school in Bangor, produced a particularly strong showing in the first event of a trio; the aquathlon, finishing in fourth place.

Speaking on his experience of taking on the challenge on behalf of his nation, Osian said: "I found the run really tough, as the bends really took the energy out of my legs.

"I’m a runner as well as a triathlete – in the winter I’ll do cross country and I’ll do track and triathlon in the summer, but I’ve really tried to improve my biking over the last few months.

"At the moment I try and aim at both sports – I think it’s better that way.”

Now in its thirteenth year, the School Games event – featuring over 1,000 athletes – saw some of the most talented schoolchildren from across the UK compete in 11 different sports.

Some of Britain’s biggest sporting stars have previously competed at the School Games before going onto international success, including Ellie Simmons, Jonnie Peacock, Katarina Johnson-Thompson and Adam Peaty.
