The New Zealand Secondary Schools Triathlon Championships took place during Summer Tournament Week in Queenstown.
In the Under 14 race Filip Martin secured the Gold medal and Flynn Balfour the Silver.
In the Under 16 race Charlie Hook finished in 9th place and Jacob Lean in 10th.
These young men then teamed up with competitors from Girls’ High to race in the Sprint Mixed Teams event, with Filip and Flynn in the winning U14 team, while Charlie and Jacob were in winning the U16 team.

Wilson Hannon has just finished competing in the U19 Men’s category at the Oceania Cycling championships held in the Anna Mears Velodrome in Brisbane. Competing in his first international event, Wilson was entered in a mix of endurance and sprint events. He rode well in the endurance events against a large field of strong Australian and New Zealand competitors, but it was in the sprint disciplines where he thrived. He was just beaten in the quarter finals of the match sprints after taking it to a decider third ride against the eventual winner of the bronze medal. He then joined a New Zealand composite team to come third in the Team Sprint. The highlight was the Keirin where he firstly won his heat to get through to the final and in the final he showed his speed coming three wide around the outside and finish in the Silver medal position, narrowly missing out on Gold.
Wilson is remaining in Brisbane to compete in the Road Race event on Saturday and we wish him all the best for this.
