Trio honoured


AUSTRALIA’S first Olympic triathlon medallist, first Olympic champion and first man to win a trio of world titles have all been honoured for their feats by being named in their sport’s Hall of Fame.

Sydney’s Michellie Jones, a two-time world champion who won silver at the sport’s Olympic debut in 2000, was revealed as one of the three Australian­s.

Joining her were Sydney Games teammate Peter Robertson, a three-time world champion over the Olympic distance, and triple world champion Emma Snowsill, the only Australian to win an Olympic gold, in 2008.
