On Sunday October 6th 2019 the British Modern Triathlon Championships took place at Solihull.
The event is a part of the Modern Pentathlon series and comprises a 200m pool swim,
followed by the Combined LaserRun which involves 4x800m runs interspersed with 4xpistol shooting.
Ross Charlton posted a personal best in the swim with 2mins 16 seconds which put him in 6th place.
The athletes swim time is then converted to a handicap for the LaserRun.
Although the specialist swimmers had a significant head start on Ross,
he soon made up the handicap in the LaserRun and came home a comfortable winner in 11.17,
about thirty seconds ahead of Yeovil's George Case and London's George Simpson.
