Caitriona Jennings Shines at the World Championships25 Oct 2022
On 27th August 2022, Caitriona Jennings competed in the 100km World Championships in Berlin, Germany.
Over 250 athletes from 45 nations took part in the lapped course (13 x 7.5m laps and a short loop at the start / end). Although being in 10th position at 50km, she started to pick off the ladies ahead in the second half, and finished 3rd overall (and 1st in her age group, W40) in a time of 7:07:16. Not only was it a podium finish, but she also set the Irish National 100km record, the Irish National 50-mile record (5:39) and set the WORLD RECORD for W40. We are so incredibly proud to have Caitriona as a member of the Swimming and Triathlon Society.
