Havering Tri’s Marton Cseik and Mark Billyard shone at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships recently in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

A total of 2,380 athletes took part and Cseik followed his win at the IM 70.3 Wimbleball event and runners-up spot at the Outlaw in Nottingham with a superb 43rd place in a time of 4:17.56 as Billyard clocked 4:41.50 for 370th.

And the duo were at the Ironman 70.3 Weymouth a week later, with Cseik third in his age group (15th overall) and Billyard 11th in his (61st) to qualify for the 2018 World Championships in South Africa. But Chantel Coetzer Bierbaumer was 16th in her age group, missing out.

Gina Dickson (2:06) and Lisa Martindale (1:42) took part in the Thorpe Park and HSV sprint triathlons, while Daniel Hughes (1:07), Dave Rogers (1:10.46), Dave Sherman (1:13.34) and Olivia Littlechild (1:21.08) swam two miles in the Serpentine.

Russell Edgings clocked 1:42 at the muddy Hatfield Forest half marathon.
