Ellie recently competed in the Triathlon Qld Duathlon Championships. She finished in 2nd place in the 13 year age group. Ellie also recently competed in the schools National Mountain Bike Championships. She was placed in the U15 yrs category as there were not enough girls to form smaller, more age appropriate races. At 12 yrs old, this effectively had her entered as one of, if not the youngest competitor in her races. The event was held over 3 days. She crashed on day one during the first race but managed to finish with bumps, scratches & a mild concussion!
Her final result for the entire event has her placed overall as 4th in national championships! Tired but proud young lady. Ellie also competed in the 3+3 GIANT Mountain Bike event at Spicers Retreat- Grandchester. This is a 2 day event with a race both sat & sun. Ellie placed 2nd both days in the “A” grade girls class & 5 th overall ( boys/ girls).
