Barbour takes first place at Tewkesbury

Liam Moakes 21st Mar, 2017

OSCAR BARBOUR claimed first place with an impressive performance in the third round of the Tewkesbury Aquathlon.

Oscar’s triumph came in a swift time of 23mins, 58secs for the 400m swim and 5km run.

His stunning swim of just 5:44 was topped off by his current impressive running form to deliver a 5km run in just 18:14.

Considering he had run the previous day in the Inter-Counties cross country competition, it was a great performance, and he said of his race: “My legs were a bit heavy but not too bad. I’m starting to get back up to full fitness.”

Also competing for the club was Phil Groom in the veterans competition and he took 24th place overall on the day in a time of 32mins, 10secs.

This secured an impressive fifth place in the veterans age group competition.

The final round of the series is on April 9.
