Triathlon winners
Australia Day Junior Triathlon individual winners Wade Potter and Samantha Lloyd with Australia Day ambassador Glenn Sargeant.

Australia Day in Cobar for 2009 kicked off in the usual Cobar Australia Day way with an early start for many competing in the annual junior triathlon.

There was a good field of entrants for the event run by the Cobar Little A’s Club with a change of format introduced to this year’s junior triathlon. Participants began the event with the bike leg, then did the run and finished with the swim leg.

The male overall individual winner was Wade Potter, competing in the 14-15 years division.

The first female to complete the course individually was Samantha Lloyd in the 12-13 years age group.

Other individual winners in their age groups were: Liam Prince and Georgia Baker (10-11 years male and female) and Dylan Prince (12-13 years male).

The 16-17 years team, ‘The New Australians’ made up of Rohan Lloyd, Ben Turton and Robert Newey, were the fastest team to complete the course.

Other winners in the teams competition were: 14-15 years—the 221ACU team of Tony Place, Shane Place and Jesci Clark; 12-13 years—the ELB team of Ethan Black, Luke Hillier and Bayley Prendergast; 10-11 years—the BM’s team of Blye Dawson and Max Hillier and the 8-9 years division was won by the Golden Goodies team of Ryan Dalzell, Niamh Urquhart and Coopa Martin.
