Over the weekend we saw Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy / Hybrid Concepts Australia athletes competing at University of the Sunshine Coast Mini Track Meet,Noosa Open Water Swim and Hamilton Wheelers Criterium at Lakeside
In warm and humid conditions on Thursday night we saw 4 SCTA / HCAUS athletes in action over the 3km distance. With prize money on the line it was always going to be fast and tactical, more so in the men's event. In the Ladies we saw Kirra Seidel (10.13) go straight to the lead after lap 1 and stayed there to take out the race and $200. Hot on her heels was Romy Wolstencroft (10.36) in 2nd , while Jazzy Shults (11.43) just missing 3rd with 4th place.
In the Men's race a very slow first kilometre of 3.13 saw the action hot up with a lot of surging and stopping till the eventual winner went to the front with a 2nd km of 2.56 and last km of 2.46 Jake's Hynes legs were torn out from under him to finish 8th in 9.37.
On Saturday we saw 3 SCTA / HCAUS athletes in action with Ben Hogan (3km), Chris George (2km) and Ryan Marsh (1km). In ideal conditions for swimming Chris was the best placed with a 2nd 30-39 Years Male.
On Sunday we had a few of the boys head down to Lakeside for the Hamilton Wheelers Criterium. In very Hot and humid conditions they all finished in their respective grades. Kevin Hammond was the best with a 2nd place in C2. Well done to the other Boys Jake Hynes, Lachlan Sinclair and Toby Coote.
