Hearty congratulations must go to the 10 young Bribie Island athletes selected to represent the Sunshine Coast and Met-North at the Queensland All Schools Sports State Championship Triathlon.The event was recently held in Hervey Bay, with the combined Sunshine Coast team placing third in the all-Queensland competition.


Wow! Seeing so many students selected and all the hard work and training payoff is an achievement. After months of training, the studentsfirst qualified for the Sunshine Coast and Met-North Team at an event at Lake Kawana. This was followed by the state event held over three days at Hervey Bay, with two days of intense competition. Initially, with individual events, the 12 and 13-year-old athletes competed in a 300m swim, 10km cycle and 2.5km run, whilst the 14 and 15-year-oldathletes completed a 500m swim, 15km cycle and 4km run. The following day they competed in the teams' events with some completing two legs of the events.


A triathlete’s challenge is competing in three disciplines at a top level wereeffective training and fitness is required.Having so many young people from Bribie competing at this level shows significant dedication and commitment with theoutstanding support of parents and teachers making this a reality.


Community Markets (BIDCA), Caboolture Sports Club and the Bribie RSL for their sponsorship and help covering the costs of getting the students to Hervey Bay.
