Trigg’s Open Competitors Challenge Australia’s Best at This Years Australian Championships.

3 Trigg Island Competitors smile together after their event

We knew the assignment was going to be tough, but Western Australia’s Club Champions were out to prove that they are fit to compete with the best Australia has to offer at this year’s Australian Championships.
Mozzy and the team of volunteer coaches had been working hard with the athletes, pushing towards the pinnacle event hosted between Scarborough Beach and Trigg Island, which would also close a successful season in the surf and on the sand.

Coming up against Olympic competitors, and Nutrigrain Ironmen / Ironwomen can be a daunting task, but Trigg Island SLSC Open and Youth competitors took it within their stride and performed class acts that found them amongst the finals across the 4 days of competition that were the Open Australian Championships.
A golden moment came for our U23 March Past Team, who took the National Championship in style. The amphitheater at Scarborough was filled with a sea of green Trigg Island members, who came to support all our Trigg March Past teams, and when the announcement was made that the U23 team had taken the title, the energy, and excitement were infectious, which continued to flow throughout the day.

As a club, we couldn’t have been prouder of everyone’s efforts over this season, to be State Club Champions and to finish 22nd in Australia is an incredible feat. Congratulations to all competitors, and to our Head of Athlete Development and Coaching – Andrew Mosel, who has coached this group to an elite standard and continues to push to get the best out of all his athletes.
We’d also like to thank all volunteer coaches and supporters who have assisted throughout the season and supported the athletes on their journey.
