The 2014 World Championships

What an amazing day for British Quadrathlon, the BQA are extremely  grateful to Lincsquad for putting on a fantastic race, truly worthy of World Championship status! Everyone I spoke to has been blow away by how much effort had been made by Lincsquad, along with the support from your sponsors and your town ‘Brigg’. Believe me it was a very wonderful World Championships, every single athlete was made to feel so special! There were so many positive comments, the atmosphere was brilliant, everyone loved it Great Britain couldn’t of done it without you!
BE PROUD LINCSQUAD, you have certainly given the BQA and British Quadrathlon the best BOOST we have ever had!!

The standard of racing was World Class, with strong male and female athletes coming from Czech and Germany to defend their titles. Team GB (BQA members) took advantage of the championships being on home turf and had their strongest and biggest Team ever, a huge thank-you to all 36 of you racing for our GB Quad Team! Without your support (your BQA memberships), we would have no BQA (Governing Body) and so we wouldn’t be able to affiliate to the World Quadrathlon Federation, who allow us to host these amazing Championship Races.

As in true BQA style our GB Team is made up of BQA Members, who are at the top of British Quadrathlon, but just as important to us, it is also made up from members who want to share their passion, and spread the word for our sport! The BQA wish to thank every single member of the Team, for giving your very best and flying the flag for us, you have put British Quadrathlon back on the World Map!
