Eurocoast Triathlon Club news

The Eurocoast Triathlon Club last weekend held a dinner to celebrate three years since the clubs formation. Although not a formal presentation night, some awards were made, primarily to recognise club member’s achievements as they stepped up to a higher level of competition at the next distance category. Club President Rod Bradley made presentations to: Rebecca Shepheard, who this year competed at Ironman distance (3.8km swim, 180km bike, 42.2km run) at the Port Macquarie Ironman Australia race. Claudine Bradley and Richard Jeffrey, who both competed at the half Ironman distance (1.9km swim, 90km bike, 21.1km run). Richard placed second in his age group on his first attempt at this distance. Kim Young and Stephen Phipps, who both competed at the Olympic distance (1.5km swim, 40km bike, 10km run). Sally Jeffrey, who won her age at the Penrith Diamond Womens Triathlon Festival in the Sprint triathlon distance (750m swim, 20km bike, 5km run), but was amazingly more than 20 minutes ahead of her closest rival. Kim Young also was awarded the prestigious Golden Crank award, for the most memorable events during the season. Club members are now starting to train and prepare for the 2017-18 triathlon season, which kicks off in Forster in October. The Eurocoast Triathlon Club will hold its AGM on Thursday 10 August, at the Better Bodies Gym, 68 Queen Street, Moruya.
