BATTLING against the elements, Salisbury Tri Club’s Nigel Peterson and Andy Holme had strong showings in the Swanage Triathlon.

The race was shortened because of bad weather, but that didn’t hamper both from going on to finish 12th and 48th.

Elsewhere, Rob Lush competed in the Cotswold 226 long distance triathlon. The rain caused problems again, but Lush fought on for a time of 12 hours 58 minutes, finishing 98 among a field of 150.
