KEIGHLEY triathlete Jimmy Lund is toasting a bronze medal on the international stage.

Lund, only in his early twenties still, is making waves at world events, and his latest impressive performance came in Ibiza on Monday.

He came third at the World Aquathlon Championships on the Balearic Island which is usually more associated with hard partying than high performance.

Hungarian duo Gorgi Dobi and Marton Kropko started the race brightly on Monday, but Lund was always in the mix.

Kropko pulled clear out of the water, while Cristian Fernandez and Lund reeled him in as Dobi dropped off.

Fernandez maintained his pace the best, and the Spaniard claimed an impressive victory.

Britain's Christopher Perham had dropped back after his arm struck the canoe in the water, but he roared back to pinch second off Lund, who at least claimed that bronze medal by holding off Germany's Jannick Schauffler.

Kropko managed to finish fifth, claiming the junior world title in the process.

Lund trains at the Loughborough Triathlon Performance Centre, while he also works as a swimming and triathlon coach in Loughborough having completed his Sports Science degree at Loughborough University in 2022.

He has just returned from a training camp in Quarteira, Portugal with the training squad.

He competed in the Europe Triathlon Cup in Quarteira while on the training camp, starting the race brightly with a strong swim before fading away to finish outside of the top 10.

Lund will be racing next at the British Super Series in Llanelli on May 13.
