All the boys were given the chance to take part in the School Triathlon as part of the selection process for the SCPSSA Triathlon.
We had over 50 boys take part in the event on a very hot Friday afternoon, where they swam in the school pool, cycled around the school grounds, and then ran down to the river before running twice round the school fields.
The boys all showed the Waihi Spirit and races were extremely close. The first six boys in each grade (Years 5/6 and Years 7/8) were selected to represent the school.
The races were so close that the 7th and 8th competitor home in both grades was less than 15 seconds behind the 5th and 6th place getters. This level of competition shows the strength in depth of triathlon as a sport at Waihi.
A big thanks must go to all parents and supporters who came on the day.
