FAVOURITE AB Andrew Wilkinson
has won theAustralian Defence Sports
Triathlon Association (ADSTA)
Olympic Distance Triathlon in
Newcastle on March 21.
AB Wilkinson completed the 1.5km
swim, 40km cycle and 10km run in a
time of 2:04.14 after taking an early
lead in the swim leg.
With water conditions deemed too
warm for wetsuits by the officials, AB
Wilkinson's fish-like swimming came
to the fore and he left the water in the
lead pack, well set for the bike and run
leg of the race.
"The Newcastle triathlon was just a
training run," AB Wilkinson said.
"I'm building up to the Busselton

some of its competitors.
"It was a good race for me until

we managed to catch the lead group,
which put us in a good position for

behind with a time of 2:17.42.

Tranter who competed in his first
Olympic distance triathlon with a time
of 2:32.10 and LCDR James Pearson
who recorded the fastest time in the
bike leg with a blistering 1:09.31 to
complete the course in 2:21.36.
Olympic distance just a training
run for Toowoomba triathlete
LS Tranter trained for two months
for the race after having only competed
in a sprint distance race before.
"To complete my first Olympic dis-
tance race was awesome," LS Tranter
"Having only raced a sprint com-
prising a 750m swim, 20km bike and
5km run, the distance was always
going to be challenging.
"The hill on the bike leg was as
hard as it was steep and only levelled
out once -- it was quite harsh on the
legs. Fortunately the run leg was fairly
flat, which was good after the tough

all competitors doing the ADF and
