Robert Harrison – Triathlete

The Graham Foundation Fund was set up recently through our website due to the increased number of requests we were receiving for sponsorship and funding for various charities and events. Robert Harrison, who lives in Blairgowrie, recently applied to the foundation for funding towards competing in the European Triathlon Championships being held in Alanya, Turkey in June 2013. Robert will be representing Great Britain in the championships having come 2nd in his age group (40-44) and 6th overall in the Scottish Triathlon championships at Strathclyde Park in September last year. Robert is a member of the Perth Triathlon Club and leaves for Turkey this week to allow himself a few days to acclimatise to the temperatures in Turkey and some light training. The competition takes place between the 14th and 16th June and we wish Robert all the best as he hope to improve on his sixth place finish from last year when he competed in Eilat, Israel.
