Duathlon duel

by Anonymous Author

West Melton School children took to the roads and paths around the Selwyn township recently for the school’s duathlon for its Year 4 to 8 students.

The pupils competed either as individuals or as part of a team.

The school’s promotion officer Rita Spadoni said for many of the Year 4 students it was their first time competing in a duathlon but all showed great resilience in completing the course.

“We would also like to acknowledge and thank the many parent helpers who came and helped on the day. It was really appreciated.”

From the competition, the school will name its Year 5–8 athletes to compete at the Lincoln Zone Duathlon later this month.
