This was a great result after 8th at Geelong 70.3 two weeks ago following 2 wins in the Tasmanian Series at Seven Mile Beach and Beauty Point.
Sunday saw the running of the 2009 Oceania and Australian Long Course Triathlon Championships at Huskinson on the NSW Coast. A beautiful spot with a relaxed atmosphere. I had a great race to claim the Bronze medal. Swam strongly through the 3km to exit the water with a group of 5 to put me in the top 7 and had a blitzing transition to start the bike in 3rd. I pushed the pace on my new Giant Trinity over the 82km and whilst some of the positions changed I held 3rd position. Onto the 20km run I still felt strong and whilst building on my lead to hold third I was also closing the gap on 2nd but ran out of road. I'm very excited to come home with a medal and an automatic qualification for the World Championships next October in Perth.
