Weekend Wrap up Feb 2020

The last week of February 2020 was a good week for Triathlon and congratulations to everyone has raced during the week.

Firstly during the week it was All Schools Triathlon and Grace had an absolute smashing race. This was her goal race for the season and what she had been working for. Coming out of the swim in 2nd place and on the bike a group of 5 formed (non drafting) with everyone staying in close contact. When the run started all 5 girls made their intentions clear that it was going to be a fast and hard run. It was a close finish with Grace finishing 3rd and qualifying for the Nationals which was the goal and a massive leap in race form over the last 12 months. I was also involved with a school team of racers and of the 5 races we entered we managed to achieve podium finishes in 4 races.

Over the Weekend we had the Go-Series triathlon. The kids tri team was racing with Sebastian, Harvey, Ellie and Isaac. They all had strong races including the 2 fastest times in the boys short course for Sebastian and Harvey overall. It is great to see our team confident, fast and slick in their racing and transitions.

Finally there was also Husky triathlon with a number of people racing over the weekend. Lily from the kids tri team took on the kids race and Grace fresh from racing All Schools took on the sprint allegedly with no goals or expectations. Well when you are on fire you become unstoppable! Grace took the sprint race hard and started the run in 2nd place overall roughly 40 seconds behind the race leader. Another blistering run saw her take first place by 24 seconds. Well done Grace I am sure this is only the beginning of what you will achieve.

Go Series Race #2 2019/20

Race #2 of the Go Series was held at the weekend. Due to the recent heavy rains the format was changed from a Triathlon to a Duathlon. Even though there was a change in format race numbers were still high and the kids enthusiasm was even higher. This was another great opportunity for the kids to race and also put their skills from training into practice. We can’t wait for the next race in two weeks time. Fingers crossed the water will be given the all clear for a swim and return to triathlon format.

Relative Age Effect in Sport

Does a child’s birth date have an impact on their sporting career and selection prospects? I have chewed many an ear off from those polite enough to listen on my theories about how birth dates do impact in the developing years. Here is the article that supports it. https://believeperform.com/the-relative-age-effect-in-sport/
