A cracking weekend of racing by the Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy / Protector Aluminium Athletes that were in action at QTS # 6 Caloundra Triathlon, Tweed Coast Enduro and Sunshine Coast Regional Athletics Championships
Caloundra staged race 6 of the Queensland Triathlon Series under humid conditions with a slight breeze which paved the way for some fast and furious racing. With No Open Male or Female field athletes were in their respective age categories. SCTA Athletes performed extremely well gaining 8 x Category Wins, 4 x 2nd Places, 3 x 3rd Places and 2 x 4th Places with 2 Males in the top 10 overall and 3 Females in the top 10 Females Overall.
The Fastest SCTA Male was Jake Hynes, SCTA Junior Scholarship Holder where he finished 2nd behind a Swiss Athlete over here training and 7th Overall while Romy Wolstencroft, SCTA Junior Scholarship Holder, was the fastest SCTA Femalewinning 16-19 Years and 5th Female Overall and this was after a pit stop at the toilet during her run leg.
Other Category winners included Kate Schultz (30-34 / 6th Female Overall), Lucy Bowden (25-29 / 7th Female Overall), Brodie Gardner (30-34 / 8th Overall) and Ron Craig (Clydesdale 90-99kg).
Michael Woodcock (45-49) and Tania Gover (40-44) both had strong races to finish 2nd in their respective Categories. Rounding out the Podium was Rachel James 3rd (30-34) in her prep leading to the Commonwealth Games Triathlon for PNG and Sharlene Leeson (40-44). Just missing the podium in 4th places were Ange Brearley (30-34) and its was great seeing Jan Harvey (50-54) back having a race after a period out of competing.
In the Enticer, Young Gun Peyton Craig took out the race win and U/14 title while Anastasia Heikkila took out the 16-19 years and 2nd Female Overall.
While in the Kool Kids, Parker Duetzmann continued his podium finishes with a 2nd (7-9) and it was great to see Pipi Barlow back on the podium with a 3rd (7-9). It is great too see the progression of the junior athletes in the Kool Kids and Enticer and like to note that Zoe Davis in the Enticer and in the Kool Kids Mia Davis, Hugo and Madison Cattle always battling to the end of their races with a smile on the face. Keep up the great work and the results will continue to come.
At the Tweed Coast Enduro, we had Simon Hearn (Open Male) and Hannah Blanchett (Open Female) take to the 70.3 distance of 1.9/90/21.1. With dead roads to ride on in the back cane fields, both raced extremely well with Simon walking away with 2nd and some pocket money while Hannah finished 5th.
At the Sunshine Coast Regional athletic Championships, Macey Roberts had a great meet taking out the win in 1500 and 800 (Record) and 2nd in the 400m (PB). She just missed the 1500 record which was held by her sister Meg.
