Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy Athletes were in action at the Queensland Duathlon Champs at Springfield while we had Zsolt Dallos compete at the Budapest 70.3.
Firstly in Budapest where the temperature was nudging mid 30's, Zsolt Dallos was lining up in his first ever 70.3 at his former home country. After coming from a kayaking background and taking out the Clydesdale division in season 2014/15, the season 2015/16 was about competing in his age group (35-39) to see how he would go and in most races he found the podium. Lining up in Budapest he was up against 300 in his category. Zsolt had a strong and consistent race to take out 14th place in his category. A great effort mate. Now enjoy the time visiting the family and enjoy the holiday.
At Queensland Duathlon Champs at Springfield saw extremely low temps of around 6 degrees which slowly climbed as the after the sun started to rise. Perfect conditions for racing with no to light winds saw some fast a furious racing out on the course. Team Shults (Kaya and Scott) took out the teams title quite convincingly, while Meg Roberts showed great form to take out the bronze medal at state champs in 16-17 Years Female.
Just missing the podium in 4th place was Jake Hynes (16-17) and Ryan Marsh (13-14) while Jazzy Shults 5th (10-11). Macey Roberts moved up an age category (14-15) and distance and raced well against strong field for 7th, while Scott Marsh (10-11) showed some great skills on the bike to move thru to 10th place.
Well done to all that raced. Results below.
