Rosie Thoennissen competed in her first ever Triathlon - the Exe Novice Triathlon in Tiverton, writes Dave Mutter.

She was very nervous, but absolutely loved it!

She finished 15th out of 42 competitors and eighth fastest woman (out of 31).

Rosie was really pleased with as she had done absolutely no swim training and was fourth fastest woman on the bike.

This has really stirred up her triathlon juices and she hopes to complete many more in the future.
