MALVERN Triathlon Club will be represented at British Triathlon's regional performance academy.

After an intense season of competing in the regional triathlon series for his age group, Malachi Cashmore won second prize in the youth male category at the British Triathlon West Midlands Youth Series awards ceremony.

Following two weeks of assessments and time trials in Warwick and Nottingham, Cashmore has been offered a place at the academy.

It helps talented young athletes in the West Midlands build on their potential and allows them to enjoy high-quality coaching with the goal of a place on British Triathlon's world class programme.
