Jolyon Ward regains Age Group World Championship Title


Jolyon Ward

82 year old Gold Coast athlete, Jolyon Ward, will return from Penticton, Canada, with his ITU Age Group Duathlon World Championship Title back in his grasp.  This is the second Duathlon World Championship title earned by Ward, having taken home the title in 2015 in Adelaide (and this year, his time was 3 minutes faster than in 2015).

Ward was the oldest competitor on the Australian team in Penticton this year, says he "feels 40" and credits that to keeping active every day.  

Also bringing home an ITU Age Group Aquathlon World Championship title was Open Water Swimming legend Penny Palfrey - going one better than last year's 2nd place finish.

Other Queenslanders on the podium in Penticton were:

Sprint Duathlon Ross Salmon  75-79      2nd place 
Aquathlon Chris Palfrey 60-64 3rd place 
Aquathlon Rowland Cook  65-69 2nd place 
Aquabike Brandi Alberts  20-24 2nd place 
Aquabike  Jordan Gover 45-49  3rd place 
Aquabike  Peter Clatowrthy  60-64 3rd place
 Long Distance        Rebecca Ungermann  25-29  3rd place
 Long Distance Rowland Cook  65-69  3rd place 

 Congratulations to all athletes who competed in Penticton!
