JAMES Cooper and Emma Houghton took part in the London Triathlon, both clocking very respectable times.

The Olympic distance event really pushed both members of the Salisbury Tri Club, with Cooper coming in at 2.17 and Houghton finishing in 2.32.

Houghton managed to finish 16th in her age group.

Also taking part in the triathlon for the first time was Alan Bayliss, who for his first Olympic distance event clocked in a very respectable 2.31.

Elsewhere, Sarah Kemp completed the Cotswolds Standard triathlon in second place in the women’s race.
