World Champion Photos

A picture says a thousand words, so here is 4 thousand words, courtesy of the 2013 ITU Female age group Olympic distance triathlon champion. I am still in awe of how hard Parys trains and pushes herself, a true champion in every sense of the word and the nicest most encouraging person you could ever meet.

ITU World Champs London2013

The 2013 ITU final was held in London over the weekend. This event also hosted the age-group world championships for both the Sprint and Olympic distances.

I am very proud of some brilliant results. A result that just puts me in total awe and say she is nothing but awesome. Parys absolutely destroyed the field and not only won her age group by a considerable margin, but was the fastest female age grouper overall. It has been an absolute privilege to work with Parys over the last 5 years leading to this result. Having seen her work through highs and lows over this time and always coming back stronger each season is inspirational. A result of unrelenting dedication and perseverance to keep working to achieve her best.

Barbara decided that one race wasn’t enough so competed in both the sprint and Olympic distances. Achieving a 7th and 9th place respectively in her races. It was a very competitive field with none other than the Sydney 2000 gold medallist winning both of these events. In both events Barbara was the first Australian home in her age group. A brilliant result in her first season of tri. and Dwyn competing in her first world champs event placing 39th. Another result to be proud of in only her second season of tri, I know both of these ladies will be achieving greater results in future seasons.

Racing Update Qtr 3 2012

True to form I have been slow in updating some great results over the last month.
Blackmores Running Festival Sydney, held in September with a brilliant spring day, I was on the start line with 15 half marathoners from CanToo Mac Uni Pod, we had be training together for over 14 weeks, for some this was their first half marathon and others were returning. A really great performance by everyone with 5 of the group going sub 2hrs and a couple of others getting very close, everyone had great races. For those that know this race this was a massive running day with distances from 4k, 9k, half marathon and marathon. undoubtedly the best running event in Sydney (in my opinion). It was also great to see many CanTooers out on the course who had been training in various groups over Sydney.

Emma, has been putting in solid race performances leading into Ironman 70.3 world champs (this race deserves a separate post). Results include

  • Ironman 70.3 Norway 2nd in age (4:54)
  • Bedford Classic Olympic 6th in age (2:23)
  • Monster Middle Distance 1st in age and 2nd female overall (14th position overall too) (4:36)

Excellent results particularly coming back from illness early in the season.

Parys, has continued her awesome form as she too prepared for Ironman 70.3 worldchamps. She is simply impressive the way that she always pulls out a superb performance every race.

  • Tri Challenge Team Relay (Dorney), mixed team winners
  • Milton Keynes Triathlon (English Champs) 1st in age, which means English age group champion to add to her impressive list (2:10)
  • Beford Classic 3rd in age (2:20)

The girl is just unstoppable!

Half Challenge Henley, to round out the list both Iain and Claire returned to training racing after Ironman France earlier in the season, great results to return to racing with 4th in age 4:37 and 8th in age 5:46 respectively.

It has been a busy a productive quarter with great performances, apologies if I missed any results.

Em, happy with her prizes I am not sure which lasted the longest!

ETU Champs 2012

On Friday 20 April, the ITU held the European champs in Eilat Israel.

I am absolutely delighted to report that Parys competed in the Standard Distance and not only achieved her goal of Gold in her age group, but was the fastest female age grouper overall by a clear 4 minutes! no doubt this medal will sit nicely alongside her gold from the duathlon 2 years ago. Well done Parys awesome result
