Our Very Own Half Ironman
In 2016, the Ironman 70.3 Championship will be gracing the sun soaked shores of Queensland’s Mooloolaba with its presence. This event collates the best performers from the qualifying events that happen globally each year. Each event spans a distance of 70.3 miles (113km) that competitors track by foot, water and peddle in order to gain international recognition.
Preparing for this event, triathletes gathered at Lake Wendouree on Sunday, in order to compete in the next stage of their athletic journey. Our very own Richard Squires was there with high hopes that were met in kind. After completion, Richard gained a qualifying position at the next Ironman 70.3 Championship that will be held in September 2016.
Commenting on his results from the event, Richard stated “I am thrilled and humbled by this opportunity”. This will start an amazing campaign for Richard to fulfil. We are excited to support Richard in this endeavour and are exited to see the amazing results he is sure to achieve.
