RIP Julian Jenkinson

It was with great shock and sadness that we learned of the sudden and unexpected death of Dr. Julian Jenkinson. Julian was one of our first Elagen Sport sponsored athletes and a great supporter as well as a good friend of ours over many years. He held the British Iron-distance record for 13 years set at the 1995 European Iron-Distance Championships. Also, he recorded the fastest British time at Ironman Hawaii. He had a wonderful writing style and he wrote a number of interesting articles for us during that time often laced with a dash of humour and many of which were published in Triathlon magazines. We will try to dig some of these out from the archives and re-post a couple over the coming weeks in memory of and as a tribute to an inspirational and highly regarded champion. RIP
