|British Biathle Team Dominate in Dubai||Saturday, 14th Feb 2015||Howard Jones||
Hot temperatures and a last minute change of venue to the Atlantis Hotel on Dubai's Palm did not deter the British Team at the first Biathle World Tour of 2015.
The event held on the Atlantis's Nasima Beach in front of the famous Aquaventure Water Park saw teams from Germany, Italy, South Africa and the host United Arab Emirates as well as ourselves. The GB team were so dominent that no individual finished lower than second position.
The team's first involvement was in the Youth D races and there were immmediately emphatic wins for both Rebecca Wren and Kieron Mutch with Josh Dreelan finishing second.
Sophie Mutch's very impressive swim brought her through the field to finish second in the Youth C Girls race. Kizzie Price showed the rest the way with an easy win in the Youth B Girls race and Jessica Sutton took a deserved second place. Not to be outdone, Jamie Price matched his sister's performance with a win in the Youth A race.
James Greenwell overcame the shock of being lead into transition in the Masters A race with a masterly swim which brought him back into transition with a clear half a minute lead, enough to ensure victory by the end of the race. Andy Price gained second in the Masters B race and Mary and Peter Colett won their masters C and D races respectiveley.
The final events, the seniors, saw victory for Rachel Jones and a silver for Gareth Allen. So 8 winners and 5 runners up - a spectacularly good performance from the team who, imediately following the presentation went into the adjacent water park to relax and rest on their laurels for the remainder of the day.
The next World Tour event is in Italy on 7th June.
