Darcy Williams wins national triathlon medal
Year 10 student Darcy Williams recently represented Victoria at the National Triathlon Championships on the Sunshine Coast. He has written the following report documenting this wonderful experience:
"I recently travelled to the Sunshine Coast for the Australian Schools Triathlon Championships.
Being my third year doing this, I was proud to be honoured with the role of Team Victoria Vice-captain.
This entailed me to lead, support and encourage the whole team, especially the junior age group.
The weekend began with the opening ceremony where the State teams were introduced, followed by the Australian anthem.
Following this, the individual race was on Sunday.
With dry conditions it was most definitely a fast race where I was pleased to come away with 5th in the intermediate age group.
The last day consisted of the relays. I was part of the all age relay team where Victoria received their only medal for the weekend, a bronze. Overall, it was a great experience."
