Teens run away with triathlon ti­tles

Joondalup Weekender - - Sport -

TWO Hillarys teenagers have taken out ti­tles at a state triathlon com­pe­ti­tion.

The fi­nal race of the 2016-17 Triathlon Se­ries was held in Hillarys this month, with 17year-old Jes­sica Clax­ton de­clared the over­all win­ner of the fe­male open cat­e­gory and Jas­mine Greaves (14) top­ping the fe­male 14 to 15-year-old sec­tion.

Both teenagers are mem­bers of Craigie-based Break­ers Swim Club, train­ing at least 18 hours per week.

Jes­sica rep­re­sented Aus­tralia at the World Triathlon Cham­pi­onships last year and hopes to make the team again, while Jas­mine is in her first sea­son. The pair also com­peted in the School Sport Aus­tralia Triathlon Cham­pi­onships in New South Wales this month.

Jes­sica Clax­ton (17) and Jas­mine Greaves (14), both of Hillarys, won triathlon ti­tles re­cently.
