Junior success

Karen Maxwell British Champion

Douglas Tullie received the good news last week that he’s been selected for the British Team going to the Junior World Championships being held in Australia this July. This was the event in 2006 where Douglas lost several contact lenses during one race so he’ll be keen to show the rest what he’s really capable of this time around.  Douglas is also selected for the 2008 JWOC training camp taking place in Sweden in August.


Only 4 Reivers made the 350 mile round trip to South Wales for the British Championships but it was certainly worthwhile for one of them.  Karen Maxwell triumphed in W12A and said that the Scotjos training must have helped because she hadn’t found it that difficult – despite the tricky mining works and high undergrowth.  The rest of the family had mixed results – Eileen had a steady run but Ian and Kirstin weren’t quite so happy.

Well done to both.
