Pina Hannan

A 60-year-old Derbyshire woman is representing her country in one of the world’s toughest sports, as students Mark Robins (below left) and Jack Neath (below right) report.

In the grand scheme of things, five years isn’t a particularly long time. Perhaps this is why it’s so surprising that one local athlete, 60-year-old Pina Hannan, is representing the country on August 11 in the very first European Triathlon Championships – only five years since she took up the sport.
