Glenmore triathlete says funding is a major issue in trying to get to the top level

Mia Griffin has to go out to Mallorca to train and compete regularly

Glenmore Triathlon Competitor Mia Griffin admits it’s very stressful to try and get to the top level as she is on very little funding.

Mia has to go out to Mallorca to train and compete regularly, and she says it’s a tough juggling double act to both fund and compete.

She said “At the moment, I am on so little funding, that’s it’s a constant stresser in my life trying to balance to striving to compete at the very top level while not been as comfortable as you would have liked”.
