Triathlon triumph

Published on: 25 Aug 2017

THE Prostate Cancer Care Appeal at Southmead Hospital has gained new strength from consultant urologist Anthony Koupparis, who raised more than £6,000 by taking part in the Cotswolds 226 Triathlon.

Anthony, 42, works as a part of the hospital's urology team.

 “At Southmead we offer world-class robotic surgery treatment to men suffering with prostate cancer and our appeal is to buy two new robots so we can help even more men. It’s such a worthwhile cause,” he said.

Anthony completed a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile cycle, topped off a full 26-mile marathon; a massive undertaking for a novice.
