The start of the 2019 racing has started with Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy / Protector Aluminium Athletes in action at the QTS # 5 Robina Triathlon.
Always a very warm and humid race and this year was no exception with a light southerly wind to start the day off with. As the morning progress the wind stayed relatively the same but the heat and humidity did rise as the morning went on.
SCTA had 20 athletes race across the four distances of OD, Sprint, Enticer and Kool Kids with 8 podiums including 3rd Open Female with Lucy Bowden.
Category winners included Michael Hooper (20-24 OD & 5th Overall), Ryan Marsh (14-15 Sprint), Jasyme Coventry (16-19 Sprint & 2nd Female Overall) and SCTA Junior scholarship Holder Peyton Craig (Enticer U/14 & 2nd Overall). Ella Wooldridge was 2nd (16-19 Sprint & 6th Female Overall) while in 3rd we had Paul Marchant (25-29 OD) and Jason Palmada (45-49 OD).
Just missing the podium with 4th places were Jake Hynes (16-19 Sprint & 7th Overall), Kaya Shults (16-19 OD), Ron Craig (Clydesdale 90-99kg Sprint) and SCTA Junior Scholarship Holder Macey Roberts (16-19 Sprint)
