We had a big weekend of racing with some great performances – well done guys!
Oscar Dart became our first ITU Youth National Champion winning his race over in Perth at the Australian Junior Tri Series. In the process he also won the national series as well. This Kid is a superstar and we will all watch on in interest over the coming years – well done Oscar.
Whilst Oscar was doing that, John Dickson fulfilled a dream over at Ironman NZ. He stopped the clock in 10.48 to claim second place in his age group and qualify for Kona for the first time! Well done Dicko, we are all so happy for you, your result did not happen by accident – congratulations.
