Triathlon Queensland’s All Schools Triathlon returned to Lake Kawana on Sunday, 6 November 2016 with a record 638 participants across the five race distances. Athletes from 7 to 18 years old lined up on Sunday, with experience ranging from first timers to the up and coming athletes in Triathlon Queensland’s talent pathway.

The main draw card to All Schools is undoubtedly its status as a selection race for Queensland School Sport, providing school students from across South East Queensland the opportunity to be selected into their regional representative team. Athletes selected into their regional teams will go on to compete for selection in the Queensland State Team at the Queensland School Sport Triathlon Championships to be held in Hervey Bay early next year.

Temperatures rose to 32 degrees on Sunday, but that didn’t slow down Luke! He took out the Senior males event after a dominant performance across all three disciplines (750m Swim, 20km Bike, 5km Run) finishing in 57:41.300 with his closest competitors trailing by 30 seconds and 58 seconds respectively.

In tough conditions Luke was buoyed by record spectators at Lake Kawana, with a massive turnout of supporters lining the sides of the course and many proud coaches and parents providing race day support.

The event also incorporated the official launch of Triathlon Australia’s new partnership with Sanitarium Health & Wellbeing which will help more Aussie kids discover the lifelong fun, fitness and friendships offered by the sport of triathlon. Weet-Bix Kids TRYstars is the new name for Triathlon Australia’s national junior participation program. It aims to encourage 7-12 year-old kids to get involved in the sport of triathlon by focusing on development of FUNdamental movement skills like agility, balance, coordination and speed, which can easily translate into successful participation in any sport.

Our school community is so proud of Luke and this amazing achievement and wish him the best of luck as he prepares for another gruelling schedule of elite races in 2017.​
