Seventh Place for Ralph Street at the World Games

Day 1 of the World Games in Wroclaw, Poland and Ralph Street was top Brit taking seventh place in the sprint race. It was incredibly close for the placings around Ralph with 0.4 separating 5th to 8th. Ralph was delighted finishing in his highest position ever in a senior international sprint race.

Peter Hodkinson finished in a very creditable 12th place.

Peter said after the race: "I'm quite happy with my race. I pushed hard from the start, which set me up well for the race although it did hurt a lot at the end! I made one mistake, taking the wrong alley in the main square, which I think cost me a top 10 position, but I'm pleased with a good result nonetheless. I think I've made good progress this year and would certainly have taken 13th at WOC and 12th at World Games if I'd been offered them at the start of the year. I'm confident I can get a top 10 next year."

In the Women’s race, it was a first World Games experience for Megan Carter Davies after her World Championships debut this year. Megan finished up in 17th place and said afterwards:  "It was a decent run and I am quite happy with it. The course was straightforward but I was tiring towards the end and slowing down going in and out of controls"

Tessa Strain finished in 22nd place. Tessa said after the race that "unfortunately, a mistake in the first half of the race meant she didn’t get the result she was hoping for. The rest of the course outside of the mistake went well for her."
