Tom Perchard Qualifies for the Commonwealth Games

Published: 13 Sep 2013

MTS is very proud to announce that Tom has managed to qualify for the Commonwealth Games, reaching his second qulifying time at the London Triathlon on 28th July.

The London Triathlon acted as the selection race for the Jersey Commonwealth Games Team. It was an opportunity for Tom to get his final qualifying time but the most important result was to be within the top 3 Jersey competitors. Tom got his first qualifying time at Windsor Triathlon in June. 

Due to the water temperature in the London Docks being too warm for wetsuits to be allowed, all the elite competitors wore only their triathlon race suits which meant less buoyancy and slower times. Luckily for Tom he exited the water with a group of five others who worked well on the bike and caught another six people ahead of them which meant a stronger bunch which could work well together to achieve a fast bike split.

The course was 2 laps out and back from the ExCell docklands to Big Ben. The run course was 3 laps around the docklands. Tom did the 10km in 33:42 and finished in 16th place overal in a time of 1:53:03, well under the qualifying time of 1:58:45 and 2nd Jersey competitor after Dan Halksworth.

Tom is now planning his buildup to the Commonwealth Games with his coach, Nick Saunders, aiming to get off the Island for a bit of warm weather training.

Tom has been training in the Brooks Glycerin 10s and racing in the Brooks T7 Racers.


Congratulations Tom.
