The European Triathlon community is pulling together following the sad passing of one of our Age Group athletes at the European Cross Triathlon Championships in Strobl.
Thomas Tittel, 37, collapsed on the course and later died in hospital. He is survived by his wife Kathleen, 35, and a two year old son, Timo.
The local organisers of Strobl have set up a fund to help support Kathleen and Timo and the ETU are appealing to the European triathlon family to make a > donation to help his family.
President Renato Bertrandi said: "The ETU family is close to Kathleen and Timo and I invite all our members to make a donation that will be a great help to Kathleen and Timo."
