A massive weekend of racing for Sunshine Coast Triathlon / Protector Aluminium Athletes in action at Queensland Schools Athletics Champs, Queensland Open Water Champs, Summer Swim Sunshine Coast, Bribie Island Triathlon Series Race # 1, Rachel James at PNG Leadership Summit on the Gold Coast and Head Coach Toby Coote presenting at Triathlon Qld Level 1 Coaching Course.
Round # 1 of the Bribie Island Tri Series saw SCTA Athletes greeted to rain, wind and cool conditions for the Triathlon. Bribie is a tough race in the dry but when you throw the rain into makes for an interesting bike course with all the corners and in and outs of the streets. Romy Wolstencroft and Chris George led the Charge in the Female and Male Open category respectively with both finishing 5th Place.
The super competitive Melissa Charlton (35-39) topped the dais, as to Marilyn Shrapnel (65-69) in taking out their respective category wins. SCTA Junior Schoalrship Recipient, Ryan Marsh, had a solid race to come away with 2nd (12-13). The ever consistent Jessica Lee (30-34) made the podium with a 3rd place. Just missing the podium was Tahlea Corcoran (14-15) in 4th while Chris Pye (30-34) was 5th. Sarah Pye (35-39) 12th and Mark Corcoran (45-49) rounded out the results with 13th.
Mooloolaba Beach turned on favourable conditions for the Spring Swim Sunshine Coast. Under cloudy but calm conditions athletes took to the water in 3 different distances. Kayleigh Foster had a great day out with 2nd Overall Female in the 1.25km and Female Race Winner in the 300m Dash, while SCTA Junior Scholarship Recipient, Kaya Shults, showed off the hard work being laid in the pool with 2nd Female overall in the 2.5km.
Brodie Gardner took the race win in the 30-34 and 4th male overall in the 2.5km showing he is on target with ITU World Cross Triathlon Champs next month. Jessica Foster was 2 spots behind her sister in the 300 dash in 3rd and 4th female overall and 5th Place 1.25km. Rounding out day was Jazzy Shults who was 5th (8-12). Well done Team SCTA
On home soil at Lake Kawana, Kayleigh Foster had a great swim to take 2nd place in the 5km Queensland Open Water Swimming Champs. It topped a great weekend for the pocket rocket in the water.
At Queensland School Athletics we saw Peyton Craig dominate the 800m where he finished 2nd and qualified for National Championships. Finn Barlow unfortunately missed out by 1 place to progress to the semi finals of the 100m but got 5th place in the Tetrathlon (4 events consisting of 800m, 100m, long Jump and Shot Putt) and in the 4 x 100m Relay. While Macey Roberts ran superbly to get a PB in the 3000m. Nice Work Juniors
