E NEWS 1 JUNE 2016

Congratulations to all our members who competed at Lake Bennett at the weekend in Triathlon NT's NT Standard (Olympic) Distance Championships and well done to those who went the distance for the very first time.

Special mention on Brett Verity's win - that's now a total of seven NT OD titles.

A huge thank you to all our members who assisted at this event.  RD Glenn Grant was aided by an awesome crew of volunteers and we thank you all for giving up your time on the day to support the athletes.
