Triathlon 2012

Patana students Tri…… TRIATHLON

Rumours of kid’s triathlon were discussed at the adult races, a few mutters here and there and before you know it Tabitha and her team have organised an event at Bangpoo Golf Club.  All we needed now were some kids to take part. Armed with prior knowledge of triathlon we set to work finding students who could rise to the challenge.  Several students came knocking on the PE door to sign up, what followed were early morning training sessions in the pool and gym. Several swim, bike and running practices prepared the students well for the race.

Students took part in races related to their age, which included a big contingent from the secondary school and fourteen primary students as young as just 7 years old competing.  In fact BPS had the youngest competitor in the triathlon, with one of the girls - Amelia (Millie) Guyett (2T), only just having turned 7, a week before the race.

With 100 participants and many competing for the first time, the event went smoothly, more importantly all the students enjoyed themselves. All competitors won a medal and some Patana students did exceptionally well.  Well done to all the students who took part, but special mention to Ethan Abai Haddon year 7, Sam Baldwin year 10, Hugo Illing year 10 and Chloe Ledger year 11 for coming in the top 5 of their age group. Another mention goes to the Johnston family who had all three of their children in the race Tom, Robbie and Rachel.

Finally, a very special congratulations must go to Yoran Van Keer (4S) for winning the 7-9yo age category and to Lachlan Kimpton (6T) for winning the 10-12yo age category.

Well done to all the competitors a great achievement and we look forward to seeing everyone train for the September event.
