Over the weekend we have had Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy Athletes in action at Bribie Triathlon # 3, Husky Triathlon and the previous weekend we had at Tweed Coast Enduro.
Over the weekend the imminent threat of Cyclone Oma threw a lot of scenarios out from the BOM. But fortunately we were spare apart from very strong gusty winds and huge surf which saw all beaches closed which also included the Pumicestone Passage. Due to this the swim was cancelled for the Bribie Triathlon which saw the format as run cycle run.
The long Course at Bribie was held over a 3km Run / 30km Cycle / and 8km Run while the short course consisted of 2km Run / 10 km Cycle / 3km Run. SCTA had a small contingent of athletes racing. Leading the Charge with category wins included Ron Craig (Clydesdale LC), Brett Stalley (55-59 LC) and Marilyn Shrapnel (70-74 SC). 2nd place on the podium went to Jessica Lee (35-39 LC) and Alana Park (20-24 LC) and in 3rd place was Pauline Ashley (45-49 SC).
Down at Husky Triathlon we had 3 athletes . In the 70.3 Simon Hearn lined up against some quality men in the Professional field. Simon finished 5th while Hannah Blanchett was 4th 25-29 years Female while Margo Mackintosh lined up in the 1/60/10 where she won 30-39 Years Female, was 1st Female and 8th Place Overall.
The previous weekend saw the Tweed Coast Enduro on where Nicholas Hull got some redemption from a puncture at Hell of the West. Nic lined up in the OPEN Males to finish 5th in a very competitive field. Also backing up from HOTW was Paul Marchant as well where he went 2 places better to land on the podium in the 25-29 with a 2nd Place. In the Enduro Teams where a team consisted of 3 members that did the full distance and times added together where we had Gyuhwang Lee have a great race coming in 14th place. In the Sprint Distance we had SCTA Club Member Kelly Anne Perkins dominate the female field to take the overall win and finish 4th overall.
