Olympic distance triathlon at Aldinga Beach, South of Adelaide, 1.5km swim, 40km ride and 10km run. This was the first time I raced on this course and I very much liked it. The swim was tough with many competitors swimming around me and the swirl at sea. I had a very good ride on the undulating course and despite strong winds. The run on the sand made it special and went well. I finished 5th in my Age category and 26th overall out of 130+ competitors. This was a performance that was noticed.
