ITU Worlds Qualification 2018
« on: December 06, 2017, 07:43:19 AM »
2018 World Olympic and Sprint Distances Championships
Nice start for the Bathurst Triathletes attempting to qualify for the Team to race the 2018 World Olympic and Sprint Distances Championships on the Gold Coast. A series of selection races will be held around Australia during summer. After 4 rounds of the Sprint Triathlon World Championships Qualifiers 3 of the Bathurst athletes are in good positions.
Jodie Martins 2nd at Kurnell certainly got her qualification off to a get start but its husband Dennis that has impressed after 2 rounds as he is effectively in 3rd place on the pointscore after a 4th placing at Canberra.   

Briefly (off the top of my head) some of the other central west triathletes well up in the points include –impressive orange athletes Kim Dale and Brian Sharp who currently  lead the 40-44 womens and 70-74 mens qualifying.
While things are looking good for young Orange Star Connor Whiteley who currently sits second in the 16-19yrs points score.
As always Orange’s Brian Kennelly and Julie Middleton are in the mix while both Phil Tudor (Orange) and Cowra’s Andrew Fisher currently hold places in the top 20 in the 50-54 qualifying. There are plenty of other in the mix with the orange club boosting a large number of members in the points....

Central West Triathletes going to the World Champs:
As expected, the Central Western Region of NSW has featured heavily in the announcement of the qualifiers for the 2018 World Triathlon Championships.

Both the World Olympic Distance and the World Sprint Triathlon Championships will be held in Australia in 2018 and with Western NSW showing its depth in the sport at the recent NSW Champs at Orange it was not surprising that large number of the regions Triathletes would performed very well in the National Selection series. In not only did many Central Western athletes record a top 10 ranking in the National Age Group Series but a couple actually topped the rankings.   

The attached list may not be a complete list of locals heading to the Gold Coast World Titles as currently an appeal process is occurring and a reserve list is to be considered in each age category. However, the attached lists suggest and impressive performance by the Orange, Bathurst, Mudgee, Dubbo and Cowra Triathlon Clubs to all have representatives at the 2018 Worlds.
