On January 11th, the inaugural Australian Para Triathlon Championships were held at Penrith’s International Regatta Centre. Although there no official Achilles teams in action, a number of Achilles members competed with considerable success.
Jonathan Goerlach and his pilot Frazer Dowling won the Australian Championship in the Tri 6 [Male] category, and finished in 4th place overall. This was another impressive performance by Jonathan, following his 5th place in the World Championship in Auckland, as featured in our November newsletter. In that edition, we urged readers to “visit Jonathan’s “Road to Rio” Facebook page. But make sure you allow yourself plenty of time for the visit. It is a fascinating and inspirational collection of challenges, triumphs and setbacks. There are also links to other interesting sites.”
