Tries galore at touch
Emma Carney stayed in the region and will visit Airlie Beach this week to work with rising star Emma Hogan as part of her Hamilton Island Local Tri Talent Scholarship.
Hogan was awarded the scholarship after her fourth-place performance in last year’s Hamilton Island Triathlon.
Carney is assessing Hogan’s strengths, weaknesses, techniques and training ground before preparing an online training program and mentorship as part of the build-up to this year’s Fujifilm Hamilton Island Triathlon in November.
Carney will also be conducting sessions for the Whitsunday Triathlon Club across the weekend, which are open to the public.
