TWO super-fit Cumbernauld girls took the Scottish Triathlon Championships by storm recently.

Sisters Cliona and Saoirse Ferguson dominated their sections at Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park on August 6.

Cliona took the gold in the 15 to 16-year-old girls’ category while Holy Cross Primary pupil Saoirse topped the podium in the under-eight girls’ section.

That makes it a double success for Saoirse who picked up a silver medal at the Scottish Schools Triathlon Championships last month.

Brother Cormac also came sixth in the nine to 10-year-old boys’ race.
