Bethan Perera was brought up in Windsor and went to school in the town.

But when she won the Sprint competition at the 29th Windsor Triathlon on Sunday she took the Gibraltar flag onto the podium with her.

Bethan moved to Gibraltar 10 years ago but with her parents still living in her childhood home in Windsor , she is a frequent visitor to the town.

Accompanied by her husband Neil, and children Arthur, six and Elin, three she was delighted to be able to compete on home turf, although she had never swum in the Thames before.

The triathlon is quite a challenge, beginning with a swim in the Thames and a scenic bike course before competitors run past Windsor Castle and down the Long Walk.

Bethan took up triathlon two years ago and has decided to make the sport her main focus, despite having represented Gibraltar at the IAAF world half marathon championships in 2018. Her next event will be at The Island Games in July when she will be Gibraltar ‘s only female competitor. Meanwhile she is making the most of the rest of her time back home as she took her children to experience some traditionally British traditions - the Garter Ceremony on Monday, Legoland on Tuesday and the Royal Ascot procession on Wednesday..
