Anglian Home Improvements is pleased to announce that we are continuing to sponsor Olympic hopefuls of the future, who are also currently training towards the Commonwealth Games which are to be held in Glasgow, Scotland from 23 July- 3 August 2014.
The first of these athletes that we would like to introduce you to is Georgia Taylor Brown. Georgia is a triathlete and a member of the British Triathlon World Class Podium Potential Squad, originally from Manchester.
Georgia has recently won gold at the European championships, which was held on Saturday 15th June. A triathlon consists of swimming, running and cycling set distances and a course in the quickest possible time.
58 athletes took part in the event, with Georgia put on an amazing performance and retaining her title – the first time any triathlete has achieved this!
Georgia also won on the Sunday and came home with a Gold medal in the GB relay team.

Georgia’s trainer is Darryl Taylor (who is Georgia’s father), Darryl used to represent England in 800m running. Georgia’s mum is also very sporty and used to swim at regional and national standard and also run for Sale Harriers. Georgia says that “She is the reason I started swimming so young”.
Georgia and Darryl would like to thank everyone for their support and are looking forward keeping you and the Anglian blog team up to date with her training and sporting events over the next year.
