A St Ives Cycling Club star has struck gold on the international stage.

Sarah Kelman triumphed in the Women’s 45-49 age group at the inaugural European Aquabike Championships in Ibiza recently while representing Great Britain.

Kelman completed the event, which featured a 2km swim and a 45km cycle, in a total time of 2:06.04 to climb onto the top step of the podium.

She finished the swim in 3.03 and clocked 1:23.18 for the cycle, with a transition of almost five minutes between the two disciplines.

The cycle was halved in distance from the originally scheduled 90km due to the race being delayed by heavy rain.
