Looking back on last year and how training and racing went, there weren’t many races. The one race was Outlaw X and I had plans to enter till all the other races had been cancelled.
I started off my 2020 season well by qualifying for all three national cross countries. I was then building for what I hoped would be my best season yet but unfortunately due to the pandemic all the British Super Series races were cancelled.
My 2020 really was a non-starter. I managed to fit in two races before we went into a series of lockdowns and tough restrictions; a duathlon and an aquathlon.
The 2020 race season was a season like no other. In Australia we began 2020 with horrible bushfires affecting the entire state of NSW where I live and cancelling a national event that was scheduled to occur in the middle of January and then immediately after the worst of the fires had eased, COVID-19 began to spread and we were forced into lockdown.

Despite the challenging year that we have all faced it has been good to look back over my results and progress that has been made. Quickly realising that covid was going to put a pause to international racing allowed me to target some of the stronger domestic races in the UK that were taking place.
Review any website and you will find a variety of styles and blade lengths, but which is best for triathletes? The wrong style or blade length could affect your swim technique and how that translates into your kick when not wearing fins.
