Olympian Gavin Noble's bike stolen by thief in Dublin

Gavin Noble finished 23rd in the men's triathlon at last year's Olympics

Fermanagh triathlete and Olympian Gavin Noble has appealed for the return of his bike and other equipment stolen in Dublin on Friday.

Noble was in Ashtown in the northern part of the city when his specialised bike was taken by a youth who headed in the direction of Cabra and Finglas.

"Just had my bike stolen in Ashtown. Silver specialised S Works Venge," said Noble on Twitter.

Noble, 32, added that a computer and other equipment had also been taken.

"Quarg power meter. My name is on it. Sentimental value.

"Red water bottle, blue water bottle, garmin computer. Zipp 101."

Noble said that the thief was wearing a "baggy yellow tee-shirt and jeans".

The Fermanagh man finished 23rd in the men's triathlon at last year's London Olympics.
