Winners are grinners which is certainly the case for triathletes Georgie Jenkins and Campbell Gray.
The duo, key members of the promising juniors competing with Echuca-Moama Triathlon Club, were crowned age group champions due to impressive results achieved during the five-race Rural Triathlon Series.
Georgie and Campbell, both 14, raced in their respective 14-17 age group over the summer and finished with the most points (best four results) tallied after the final race in Shepparton on February 23.
Georgie collected 395 points to finish first ahead of Nathalia’s Matilda Terry (299) — also from Echuca-Moama Tri Club — and Albury-Wodonga’s Ella MacLean (197).
Wins in the final two races at Horsham and Shepparton helped Georgie across the line.
Campbell competed in four of the five races to finish on 394 points, a win in Horsham and three third placings landing him the top honour ahead of Albury-Wodonga pair Nathan Rogers and Tom Freire.
The trophies cap off a successful series for Echuca-Moama Triathlon Club after Steve Gray (first), Scott Foreman (second) and John Jenkins (third) dominated the men’s 40-49 category.
Jeremy Walker (30-39) and Lauren Menz (18-29) finished second and third respectively in their divisions.
