Gwen battled appalling conditions for a great result
The weather was horrendous at the Oulton Park Duathlon. Gwen battled the appalling conditions of sleet, wind, rain and cold leading to hyperthermia.
Gwen Kinsey, who runs for Stroud Athletic Club, finished the race and was placed 2nd in her age-group. However her determination to battle on through the conditions left her exposed and she collapsed due to hypothermia. She spent some time recovering in the medical tent and we are happy to report she has recovered well.
Well done Gwen although we really don’t recommend repeating it ?
