Images from the National Aquathon Championships which were held in Salthill in Co. Galway and hosted by Galway Triathlon Club. Nearly 400 athletes turned up to compete in the kids, junior, short, and long distance races. The hardy athletes had to battle against torrential rain, strong winds and rough seas. Indeed, the weather was so bad that the 2km swim for the long distance aquathon had to be reduced to 1km. The conditions didn't deter the competitors though and spirited spectators shouted words of praise and encouragement. All the races ran successfully with Rory Sexton and Carolyn Hayes being crowned National Aquathon Champions for 2015.
