Eilat hails vintage bentleys

    John and Edward are not the only twins making the running. Let me take you to downtown Eilat, where last Friday the crowds were roaring on the entrants in a European Cup triathlon to the finishing line.

    Israeli triathlon champs, twins Ran and Dan Alterman, had predictably elicited the cheers but then spectators caught sight of another pair of twins further back in the field.

    None other than the brothers Bentley, Ralph and Jeremy, who were taking part on behalf of the London-based special needs charity Kisharon. As they raced each other in the home strait, the crowd switched their chant from “Go Altermans!” to “Go Alter Kakkers!”

    Another one of Kisharon’s 25-strong contingent, Ivan Green, from Leeds, deserves mention in dispatches too. He won the veteran’s event for over-65s, completing the 1.5 km swim, 40km cycle ride and 10km run in three hours 48 minutes and helping the team to raise £60,000.
