The Sunshine Coast Triathlon academy / Protector Aluminium Athletes have been in action over the past few weeks of racing gaining some great results and performances.
Over the weekend the predicted weather didn't eventuate that meant quite humid conditions after the heavy rain during the week. Caloundra was the scene for Round # 6 of the Queensland Triathlon Series over the sprint distance format. 21 athletes toed the line with 10 podiums and 2 x 4th. In that we had 3 in the top 6 males and 1 in the top 7 females.
Podium wins went to Lachlan Kerin (25-29 & 6th Overall), Nicholas Hull (30-34), Brett Stalley (55-59) and Sam McClaron (Kool Kids First Timers). 2nd places to Peyton Craig (14-15 & 4th Overall), Alana Park (25-29), Pauline Ashley (45-49) and Carol Wooldridge (Enticer 45+). While in 3rd Place SCTA Junior Scholarship Holder Ryan Marsh (16-19 & 5th Overall) and Rebecca Howell (25-29). Just missing the podium with 4th was Erin Wooldridge (16-19 & 7th Female Overall) and Matt Billington (25-29). SCTA Club Member Simon Hearn went out to the annual Hell of the West in Goondiwindi where the swim leg was cancelled due to blue green algae. So a 2.5km run replaced the 2km swim. with hot and humid conditions and rain at times, Simon stamped his authority and had a great day out to take the Race Win.
On the 2nd February, SCTA athletes were involved in the Noosa Ocean Swim where there were some great results. Jake Hammond 1st 300m and 3rd 1km (8-12). Jericho Pogany (1km 13-16) and Duanne Cannell (2km 50-54) both place 2nd, while Sam Penny (5km 45-49), Ben Cook (1km 35-39) placed 3rd with Zak Hammond 3rd 300m and 4th 1km (8-12).
Chloe Turner went to visit her sister in South Australia and lined up in the South Australian Aquathlon Champs where she was 7th Elite. She said she really enjoyed the cold water down there!!
