Before we get to the results….
Tetrathlon has four phases; shooting, swimming, riding and running. The impact of C19 on three of the four phases has been detrimental. Shooting ranges and village hall have only just reopened, likewise the swimming pools. School sport, being the foundation to the running phase have been shut down for the entire time. The riding phase, not so much – but with our own Somerford training camp cancelled and then in came the rain, much of the x-country training was also hampered. Congratulations to all (not just the Ludlow) the competitors and their back up crews for their endeavour and reliance. Especially after lockdown, when everything at times can feel like such a big effort. I do hope you have had time to reflect and acknowledged your achievements and most importantly enjoyed the mini adventure that has created yet more PC memories.
Big thank you to Rosie and Amanda for coming to support. Their presence takes the pressure off the parents and more importantly offers calmness and security to our jockey’s. Thank you.
