Another weekend of racing by the Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy / Protector Aluminium Athletes that were in action at the Asia Pacific 70.3 Champs at Penrith, Jackie Fairweather Memorial Sprint Triathlon at Canberra and at Race # 2 of The Bribe Island Triathlon Series.
Out at Penrith for the Asia Pacific Championships over the 70.3 distance saw Matt Duncan have a great race where he took out the title (25-29), 3rd age grouper overall and was 19th overall behind a crack field of Professionals. Simon Hearn (18-24) was our other podium with a 3rd place and 28th overall. Solid races from Zsolt Dallos 6th (35-39) and Hannah Blanchett7th (25-29) where she was 46th Female overall.
In Canberra for the Jackie Fairweather Memorial Sprint Triathlon that also doubled as a selection race for the Australian Sprint Age Group Team. This was a draft legal race with Maureen Cummings 2nd (55-59) and Jordan Gover 3rd (45-49) where they both took out some very valuable points towards gaining selection into the Australian Team.
While at Bribie Island for Race # 2 over the short course distance of 1/30/8, we saw Brett Stalley 1st (55-59) back from a few injuries and great to see him racing again and landing on top of the podium. The ever consistent Jess Lee 6th (35-39) and 9th Female Overall. Josh Corcoran lined up in the short course and took out the title 20-24
