Old Blue Ida Burrows (2019)
When Ida competed for GB and came 19th at the 16-19 World Triathlon Championships in Rotterdam in 2017, it was only her third ever triathlon event. This summer, Ida became the Swedish Youth/Junior Triathlon champion in July; came 22nd in the youth Olympic qualifier in Banyoles, Spain; and came 9th out of 90 entrants at the European Youth Triathlon Championships in Loutraki, Greece.
In late October 2018, Ida came third at the Junior Women’s European Aquathlon Championships in Ibiza, winning her first international medal for Sweden.
Ida, who studied Sport and PE as one of her A Level subjects, trained six days a week, including swimming twice a week and cycling once a week with Thames Valley Triathletes, and running almost every day. She also competes as a runner for Windsor Slough Eton and Hounslow Athletic Club, and competes for Blue Coat during the cross country season.
