HERVEY Bay's national triathlon representatives will have one last chance to win a School Sport Triathlon Championships medal in the relay formats today.

Col Curry, Lochie Armstrong and Todd Baldwin competed in the junior, intermediate and senior categories respectively at the Penrith, New South Wales, event.

Queensland coach Brian Harrington, who coaches the trio at a local level, said the boys had worked hard.

Curry's undoing was the swim leg.

Harrington said the Australian Youth Triathlon Series champion did not have his best swim, then was unable to utilise his great cycling strength to escape the pack. He finished sixth.

Armstrong, who won the national title on home soil last year, was one of the youngest competitors in the intermediate field.

"To be 10th in that field was incredible,” Harrington said. "He is the youngest in that group. To even make the Queensland team at his age was great.”

For Baldwin, the race was his final individual triathlon and the Year 12 student made it one to remember.

He put everything on the line on the bike, and held a slender lead leading into the second and last transition.

The energy expenditure caught up with the teenager, who finished 11th.
