Another Noosa Triathlon Multisport Festival has been run and won. Some great results from the Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy / Protector Aluminium Athletes that raced over the weekend. A typical Noosa Greeted the athletes with very warm temperatures, an early northerly wind that added the chop to the swim which made for trying conditions. On the run it was a tailwind out and a heavy push back into the wind.
Matt Wolstencroft took the bragging rights in the Open Masters with the win. Kate Gazzard had a strong win in the Premium Mates wave. Maureen Cummings raced her 20th Noosa and took a 3rd place in the Legends Female Wave. Lucy Bowden had a strong race with 5th Open Female and 16th Female Overall. As too Jordan Gover 5th in a very competitive Open Masters Wave. In the big boys we were represented by Kevin Hammond who was 6th 90-99kg and Michael Woodcock rounded out the top 10 with 9th 45-49 Males.
It was great to see Jake Hynes be awarded the Garth Prowd Scholarship. For myself as a Junior growing up on the Sunshine Coast, The Prowd family and USM were great supporters of myself and my brother. I had learnt a lot from Garth over the years with the commentary and being apart of the Noosa and Mooloolaba Triathlon and various other events in their portfolio. It is a great honour for one of my athletes be awarded this prestigious award.
SCTA Club Members in the Elite Waves were Ryan Fisher 4th, Romy Wolstencroft 8th and Brittany Dutton 9th.
