Trish Barton becomes Duathlon World Champion in Spain

Trish Barton, co-founder of Leeds-based Barton Legal, became the Duathlon World Champion in her age group earlier this month.

The 2021 Duathlon World Championships, which saw thousands of athletes from all over the world compete, took place in Aviles, Spain, and featured a gruelling 5km run, followed by a 20km bike ride, finishing with a 2.5km run.

Barton (pictured) posted a time of one hour and 16 minutes, putting her two minutes ahead of her nearest competitor.

With Covid-19 having delayed the Championships by two years, making training that bit more difficult, this is an incredible achievement for Barton, who was already the European Champion.

Barton is a true role model who successfully balances the demands of world-level competition with a busy legal practice focused on commercial property.
