ITU Age Group World Championships 2019

ITU Age Group World Championships 2019

Congratulations to all BTC clubbies who raced in the sprint distance and standard distance events at last weekend's ITU Age Group World Championships in Lausanne Switzerland, representing their home nations. By all accounts it was a tough course, with a choppy non-wetsuit freshwater swim, a technical and hilly bike course complete with some short sharp inclines up to 15%, and a twisty turn-y run course also with some hills. Here’s how all BTC finishers did…

SquareOne Physiotherapy - Injury Prevention & Pilates for Triathletes

SquareOne Physiotherapy - Injury Prevention & Pilates for Triathletes

A couple of weeks ago, club sponsor and physio Campbell Hanson of SquareOne Performance Physio & Pilates held an Injury Management & Prevention Clinic for club members. During the session, Campbell answered questions posed by attendees about their existing injuries and niggles, before showing attendees some rolling and trigger-point release tools and techniques, and taking attendees through a quick simple stretching routine - both intended to help improve mobility, aid recovery and avoid future injuries.

BTC 2018-19 End of Year Celebration

On Saturday evening, club members ditched the lycra and instead donned beautiful dresses and smart suits for the club’s annual end-of-season celebration and awards, held at the Public Dining Room at Balmoral Beach. It was a wonderful evening, filled with sparkles and shine (including Myriam Smith’s hair), delicious canapes and drinks, and much laughter. There was even more laughter later at the after party and the “after-after” party, but we can say no more…what happens at the end-of-season celebration after party stays at the end-of-season celebration after party!

Congratulations to all our amazing award recipients…

The World Cross Triathlon is the ITU’s version of off-road triathlon along the same lines as the X-terra brand of racing with a 1500m swim, a 30k or thereabouts mountain bike and a 10k trail run. The 2016 incarnation was to be held at Lake Crackenback in the Snowy Mountains, NSW. The first time it has visited the Southern Hemisphere. Balmoral Triathlon Club was represented by myself (Michael Taylor) racing for Australia, Alan Burton racing for Ireland, Vince Lauwerier racing for France and Mathias Kienholz racing for Switzerland.
