A busy weekend of racing for the Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy / Protector Aluminium Athletes and Club Members in action at the Mooloolaba Triathlon Festival and Active Farmers Run for Resilience Temora.
The 29th running of the Mooloolaba Triathlon saw perfect conditions for fast and furious racing. In the Standard distance, Australian Titles were on the line, while in the sprint distance we had athletes in both the Draft and Non Draft racing format.
In the Standard Distance, Callum Close (15-19) and Taylor Elms took out the Australian Title in their respective categories, with Kim Alexander 2nd (50-54). Just missing the podium was Zsolt Dallos 4th (40-44).
