British Tri names 2015 World Class Programme squad

GB elite Aaron Harris has been rewarded for his 2014 performances, including sixth at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, with a move into British Triathlon’s Podium squad.


Harris, 26, joins the Brownlee brothers Alistair and Jonathan and regular World Triathlon Series top-ten finisher Adam Bowden on the men’s top-tier team, while there are no surprises for the women’s Podium squad: Jodie Stimpson, Non Stanford, Helen Jenkins and Vicky Holland.

With qualification for Rio 2016 in their sights, British Triathlon has picked a further 14 athletes for its Podium Potential squad, though Scotland David McNamee and England’s Katie Hewison aren’t included, having both retired from international triathlon.
