GE Capital staff take part in triathlon

A 40-strong group of GE Capital employees took part in a triathlon over the weekend after being entered into the event by their employer. 

The  London  Triathlon sprint team relay, which took place hosted at Londons ExCel Centre, saw more than 12,000 professional and amateur entrants compete in a series of races. 

Helen Jenkins, British triathlete and 2008 world champion welcomed the teams, which were made up of three competitors – one swimmer, one cyclist and one runner. 

John Jenkins, CEO at GE Capital UK, said: “The performances of the teams entered by GE Capital suggest that our aim of healthy competition was successfully met, as not only were there several excellent results, but all of our teams managed to get around the course.

“We see the triathlon event as a great opportunity for people to look after their health and wellbeing, and we were delighted that so many teams could experience the healthy benefits of the event as well as competing against one another.”
