The club recently learned of the passing of Will Watson, one of the founding members of Tri London.
His widow writes:
“Very good to hear that Tri London has kept the mission of being friendly and encouraging. I remember Will training in the men’s ponds in Hampstead Heath with Andy Colvin and competing in the Nice Triathlon the year Mark Allen won. We all went down and camped there to support him. We left school on Friday afternoon at the beginning of half-term and drove down through the night to get to Nice in time for Will to register on the Saturday and then set up camp. The motorways were not then in 1990 what they are now. Nice to remember those times.”
The club extends its condolences to Will’s family.
