Standard Regional Champions Shine In Townsville

Standard Regional Champions Shine In Townsville

The Townsville Multisport Festival has now ended as we saw it play host to event number two of the 2023/24 State Series. With perfect weather across the weekend, we also saw favorable swimming conditions for quick times in the water.   

Athletes were all competing to gain valuable points for their respective State Series age groups along with the title of Regional Standard 

We saw some great racing across the weekend, with Andrew Nash claiming age group champion (Male 30-34yrs) with an impressive sub 2-hour time in standard triathlon and Katherine Smith claiming her age group title (Female 25-29yrs). State Series regulars Phillip Hermitage (Male 65-70) and Marion Hermitage (Female 60-64) managed to take out their respective age group wins. Having secured the overall age group titles in their respective age group in the 22/23 State Series, both were excited to have secured more points towards their quest for this year's State Series titles. 

In the younger age group categories, it was a Taylor trifecta who stormed to victory with Rachael Taylor (Female 7-9) along with Daniel Taylor (Male 10-11) and Sarah Taylor (Female 10-11) all crossing the line to take the win in their age groups. 

Congratulations to all of our Age Group Champions we look forward to seeing you at the next event on the State Series Calendar: QLD Aquathlon at Lake Kawana.
