In the Nissan State Series, it is Dominic Churchett (Toowoomba Triathlon Club), Rhys Jones (Fitzroy Frogs) and Damien Jeffery (South Bank Triathlon Club) in the men’s who have shot to the top by claiming the top step, and it’s Ashleigh Hunter (T Zero Multisport) and Janet Mcafee (East Coast Cyco’s) currently topping the leader board in the women’s.

All the athletes were once again treated to the hospitality Goondiwindi are well known for with their town turning out to support what has become one of the many iconic Queensland triathlons.

Toowoomba Triathlon Club were well represented on the day taking out the Neil Pagey Award for best attendance from our affiliated clubs.
