Weather clears for Triathlon

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - GAZETTE SPORT -

The wind and rain par­tially cleared Sat­ur­day af­ter­noon with some blue in the skies for the weekly Wild Dog Triathlon held at Burke St precinct in War­ragul.

The se­niors event had yet an­other great turn out, with the event con­tin­u­ing to at­tract sev­eral new com­ers.

Some se­niors took on the chal­lenge of in­creas­ing their event length, or im­prov­ing on their event times.

For the more com­pet­i­tive WDTC mem­bers, the event adds to their train­ing head­ing to­wards the Gee­long Iron­man event in Fe­bru­ary 2019.

The first male over the line in the long event was Gary Os­lon with Heidi Grat­ton the first fe­male.

In the short event Mathew Buck­land and Ash Dis­tan took out first places.

The ju­niors event had re­duced num­bers this week, which was to be ex­pected due to the cooler con­di­tions, but en­thu­si­asm re­mained high.

Even the ju­niors were keen to chal­lenge them­selves with An­drew Thomp­son in­creas­ing laps, and the WDTC wel­com­ing new tri racer Jaiden Martin. Ju­nior re­sults: Six-laps: Tahlia Lan­ge­laan 28.40, Is­abel Oswald 31.57: Five-laps: Zara McNair 25.14: An­drew Thomp­son 25.28: Four-laps: Ja­cob Lan­ge­laan 20.27: Three-laps: Troy Oswald 18.12: Two-laps: Os­car Wil­liams 15.09, Jaiden Martin 15.06: One lap: Blake Lan­ge­laan 10.33

WDTC ju­nior 5-12 years races com­mence at 4.30pm and se­nior at 5pm on Sat­ur­day with race dates pub­lished on WDTC web­site.

Early ar­rival is nec­es­sary for reg­is­tra­tion and brief­ing, with var­i­ous races lengths to suit all lev­els.

As­sis­tance with set up and mar­shalling is al­ways wel­come on the day.
