We had a great day down at the Aus Duathlon Championships. The diverse nature of our program was again on show with podiums and PB’s across the field. We welcomed Steph Demestichas back to the podium after an 18-month hiatus from training and racing. Steph is in a building phase and we are expecting big things from her in the back end of the season as her legs adapt to the rigors of long course training again.
Kodey Hodgson, Matthew Sullivan and Amanda Wilson also picked up silvers in their respective age groups. Well done guys, you make us all proud!
The standout performance of the day however goes to Jack Mitchell. Jack really hit his straps and put together a solid run/ride/run combination to come in 7th in the male 15-19 years. This is a great outcome for Jack who suffered a significant injury over the winter months.
