Matthew Sundstrom, Head of QLD State Services – Triathlon Australia said this year’s Club Championships is a special event for all clubs in Queensland as we come together to celebrate the 11th Anniversary Clubs are a valuable part of the triathlon community as they connect likeminded people who enjoy the social aspect of triathlon and value the opportunity of training as a group under the guidance of a coach.
While triathlon is often seen as an individual sport, the reality is that most triathletes are part of a triathlon club which helps them improve faster and be supported by their fellow club members in their training and racing.
This year’s Club Championships are all about coming together to celebrate and acknowledge triathlon clubs from all across the great state of Queensland. I am looking forward to watching the friendly battle for club pride and club members coming together to support each other on race day.
