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.
