The Threadneedle triathlon: all the pictures from Hyde Park
on Sep 20, 2013 at 09:45
We bring you all the action from the Grand Final held at the iconic Olympic venue at Hyde Park last weekend.
Threadneedle is the official partner of the PruHealth World Triathlon Grand Final and teamed up with Access Sport to develop Tri-3-Sportz, a legacy programme designed to break down barriers to triathlon and make the sport more accessible to young people in London.
At a taster session in Hackney with elite British triathlete, Vanessa Raw and double Olympic medallist Greg Searle, who is an Ambassador for Access Sport, children from the local community were introduced to a triathlon inspired programme that aims to deliver a positive social impact for disadvantaged young people.
Tri-3-Sportz is backed by the Threadneedle Foundation, which has committed at least £75,000 to Access Sport over three years.
Threadneedle co-ordinated and additional fundraising by employees and clients competing in a special team relay at the Grand Final, held at the iconic Olympic venue in Hyde Park last weekend. Competitors included Citywire Global editor Amy Williams, who braved the chilly Serpentine waters for a 750 metre swim.
