Focus is key for young triathlete

COMPETING at the Noosa Triathlon for the first time, Maryborough’s Jimmy Trevorrow couldn’t help but be excited – and it was everything he thought it would be.

Trevorrow finished third in the under-19s boys event last week – a great result for someone who is enthusiastic about going a long way in the sport of his choice.

The 18-year-old also achieved another of his aims, completing the Noosa Triathlon in two hours, three minutes and 20 seconds. Finishing the race in under two hours and five minutes means that he can now compete in the open men’s event at Noosa next year.

This year was Trevorrow’s first full triathlon season and he was delighted to discover that he can compete with those who have been doing the sport for a lot longer.

Trevorrow got involved with the sport when he was 15 and then took a year off to concentrate on his school work.

After he finished school he got back into doing triathlons and now his focus is 100 per cent on the sport.

Trevorrow loves competing with the Hervey Bay Triathlon Club.

“Its very well organised,” he said.

Noosa is longer than what Trevorrow is used to in Hervey Bay triathlons but he put in the hard yards at training.

“You get what you train for.”

Trevorrow said the shorter distances also helped him to build up speed.

He pulled up well from the race and is now looking forward to competing in the Bribie Triathlon Series on December 6.

Also doing well at Noosa was Steven Schofield, who finished third in the men’s 35-40 age group while Natasha Schofield finished third in the Athena division.
