ETPA goes International! Ironman Malaysia, Ironman Xiamen & WTSC Results
Success across Asia and in Melbourne. AG wins, overall wins, PB’s and first timers! What an amazing coaching system that keeps turning out fast racers.
We had another great weekend of racing with Coach Darren leading the way at Ironman Malaysia.
Darren carried a virus into the event but did himself proud with an 11:07. Far from his best, Darren will now reload and pick another race very soon.
Maria Hodges dominated her AG at Xiamen 70.3 with a commanding 10min win! Maria was also 12th female overall on a brutal day of racing! Congrats Maria.
At WSTC ETPA dominated yet again with overall race wins in both the male and female events. Carl Fannon and Kodey Hodgson dominated with solid performances in the sprint.
Declan Dooley rounded out the podium with a 17min 5k run. Ryan King, in only his first Triathlon, finished 5th overall.
Ryan dominated the swim and first half of the bike, watch this space with him!!
In the enticer Bevan Holder smashed the field and took the overall win and so did young Alex Tonelli in the dash! Xander Schmidz also held on for 3rd respectively in the dash with a solid three discipline race.
New comer to ETPA, Amelie Gilchrist, also dominated the female dash with a commanding win.
Our juniors are dominating racing at the moment. They seem to be on the podium at every event they do. Congrats guys!
Congratulations again goes to all the athletes, coaches and support staff for a massive ongoing effort.
