Triumph at the Triathlon

After a long morning at the aquathon yesterday morning, followed by an intensive cycling clinic, athletes again took to the water this morning to compete in the triathlon at Summerland Point, as the final event of the weekend.

However, yesterday’s battle didn’t seem to effect the athletes, with determination and enthusiasm seeing some amazing results as they crossed over the finish line.

Again, athletes were lucky with the weather as the sun showed its face ready for a hot and promising morning of sport.

There was incredibly tough competition across each of the academies with both the girls and boys divisions being hotly contested throughout the event. But as the day came to close, there were two clear winners for each.

Hamish Longmuir from Hunter Academy of Sport (HAS) took out the top position in the boys competition and Matilda Offord from South West Academy of Sport (SWAS) came out on top in the girls.

Over the weekend, there were several medal winners at the close of the triathlon event.

The medal winners are as follows:

Junior Boys:
1st - Hamish Longmuir (HAS)
2nd - Brock Taylor (HAS)
3rd -Troy Whittington (IAS)

Junior Girls:
1st - Matilda Offord (SWAS)
2nd - Chloe Hollingsworth (HAS)
