So many PB’s, podiums and race wins we can’t keep count!
Firstly, our three Hawaii hard chargers all made it home in the big dance. Kelly Miller was the standout with a 6th place in her AG, cementing herself as a genuine contender for a world title. Mal Joseland also ticked another big box by hitting his target time and going under 10 hours. Carolyn Tonelli had some foot issues that slowed her progress, but in true form just kept on motoring along.
In the Triathlon Victoria State Duathlon Championships, Matt Power dominated his AG with a blistering 16min first 5km. Matt took line honours in the 40-44 years age group and we couldn’t be happier with his progress leading into the WA Ironman.
At Yarrawonga Multisport Festival, ETPA dominated the day with 22 athletes racing. We also collected 14 podiums, 1 overall race win, 5 AG wins and a handful of PB’s for good measure.
Standouts for the day must be Ben Briggs with a massive PB, Mark Deagan with a 3rd and an 8 minute PB, David Britt with a 2nd and a PB. In the female race Steph Demestichas also smashed her PB picking up 3rd overall and Amanda Wilson won the female race overall after a broken preparation.
In the SSV races Ella Walsgott also had a ripping day out with a win and so did Oliver Anthony.
We also welcomed Maria Hodges back to racing after a forced rest period. Maria collected 3rd in her AG at Shanghai 70.3
Congratulations all on a massive period of racing. We really don’t have words to explain how proud we are of you all and your ongoing achievements.
