Nicole guides Melissa to top of the world

18 September 2013

Team Bath triathlete and University of Bath graduate Nicole Walters helped one of Britain’s top Paratriathletes to gold at the World Championships in London.

Nicole is guide for visually impaired triathlete Melissa Reid, who collected gold in the TRI-6b event at the Paratriathlon World Championships at Hyde Park, the London 2012 Olympic triathlon venue.

It capped a terrific season that has already seen the pair capture the British and European crowns.

Nicole graduated from the University with a degree in Sport and Exercise Science in 2010 and still trains at Team Bath.

Meanwhile former Team Bath swimmer David Hill finished just outside the medals in the Paratriathlon TRI-4 event at the championships. Hill, who swam for Great Britain at the Athens 2004 Paralympic Games, came home in fourth place.

Paratriathlon makes its Paralympic Games debut at the Rio Games in 2016, with athletes tackling a 750m swim, 20km bike and 5k run.
