  2. Justin Drew appointed Triathlon Australia's new National Performance Director 27 JUNE 2017 - Former triathlete and NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS) triathlon coach Justin Drew has been appointed as the new National Performance Director at Triathlon Australia. Drew, who has a celebrated career in triathlon coaching and High Performance sport, comes back to triathlon after working with Baseball Australia. The 44 year old takes over from previous National Performance Director Ben Gathercole, who last month resigned from the role for health reasons. Drew brings with him 25 years of experience in the sport of triathlon and a wealth of knowledge from his recent roles as Chief Operating Officer and previously General Manager Baseball Operations for Baseball Australia between 2013 and 2017. He is already looking at developing opportunities between the Triathlon Australia HP program and the Japanese Triathlon Union after spending considerable time in Japan through baseball's professional sport and commercial ventures. Drew worked as a performance Triathlon coach for the (NSWIS) and Triathlon Australia and between 1999 and 2009 he was a major player in the NSWIS triathlon coaching programs, winning the NSWIS Regional Program of the Year in 2007. Throughout that decade he coached multiple representatives onto the Australian Triathlon World Championship teams and Commonwealth and Olympic Games Shadow Teams with his athletes winning multiple medals in the Triathlon World and Continental Cups. Between 2001 and 2005 Drew also worked extensively across the NSWIS regional network and was responsible for the establishment and servicing of triathlon feeder programs around the state. He brings a wealth of experience to the Triathlon High Performance team. Drew is looking forward to the opportunity to again work in the sport of triathlon and the challenge it brings. "The history and medal success that Australia has experienced in triathlon is outstanding and the opportunity remains for our athletes and programs to once again set benchmarks for sport performance globally," Drew said. "I believe the sport is in an excellent position to continue moving forward with the short-term focus about maximising the outcomes from the 2018 Commonwealth Games as we prepare for Tokyo 2020. "There is also an immediacy to ensuring we capitalise on the talent and resources the sport has including the appropriate positioning and support of paratriathlon athletes as important contributors to TA's expected Australia's Winning Edge outcomes. "I want to see Australians consistently on the top of the medal dais with an increased focus on the daily training environments of our best, and potentially best athletes as well as significant emphasis placed on building relationships throughout the HP network. "I look forward to using all my experience and drive to position the Triathlon Australia High Performance and National Team program as the world leader. "The opportunities in Japan are exciting and I will be utilising my experience there to assist with maximizing medal performances come the Tokyo Games." Triathlon Australia's CEO Miles Stewart has welcomed Drew's appointment, especially after Ben Gathercole's sudden resignation. "It has been an unfortunate time for Ben, who succumbed to his diabetes issues as he was doing an outstanding job and we were all disappointed to see him leave but to have a person with Drew's experience come along is very exciting," said Stewart. "He has a wealth of knowledge both in the sport of triathlon and as a sports administrator who has worked in High Performance sport like baseball. "Justin has been there done that in triathlon and I know he will be widely accepted in the triathlon coaching community. "His links in Japan could well provide our coaches and athletes with some very exciting opportunities, especially in the countdown to Tokyo 2020."

  5. There is a Tranny cap that has been M.I.A since being scanned at Granville on Wed last week. Maybe it has disappeared into a Black(moores) Hole. (see what I did there?) Or maybe Pineapple found it
  6. There is a red box on the way to work so its no drama.
  7. Ok so they are here and they need new homes. Working on a 500gm Aus post satchel which is about $8, I can get up to 7 items in a bag with a bit of squishing So 1 Item $28 2 Items $48 3 Items $68 4 Items .... you get the drift up to about 7 items. If you want to do a group post, (training group/ CBD workers etc) please organise this among yourselves then just give me one payment and one name/ address. Step 1: Read all this post Step 2: EFT Payment to Peter Rox Bank of Qld BSB: 124001 Acc: 20515110 See above for costs. Put a name in the details that means something!!!

  8. No worries mate will have them in the post tomorrow.
  9. No wont be watching, even though Nicole Zagame is a local girl. I may be be overruled by the kids though as daughter goes to Nicole's old school. As much as I like Ninja Warrior, I'm over it now as I've been watching since SBS first aired it many years ago alongside Unbeatable Banzuke (now that was a show!!!), there are some pretty decent athletic specimens on there, kudos to them, but its much the same stuff.
  10. Hey mate if you like shoot me a PM with the address, I go through Sutherland on my way home every day and can just pop it in the letterbox and you can eft the money if thats easier.
  11. There have been changes made to the Race Competition Rules Changes are highlighted in YELLOW http://www.triathlon.org.au/Assets/Triathlon+Australia+Digital+Assets/Competition+Race+Rules+2017.pdf One of the main changes is regarding calf sleeves and the following explanation was given The rules have been amended to provide clarity around the use of compression calf guards in a non-wetsuit swim. I have provided below for you the rationale for the change provided by the TA National and Events Manager – Lukas Matys. The advice that we have had from both ITU and Ironman and swim coaches is that ITU/ Ironman have not allowed calf sleeves or ‘any clothing below the knee’ as it is impossible to check if these items contain neoprene or provide assistance to the buoyancy of the athlete (this is in line with our “fairness” approach). Once they are permitted competitors will start using them as an ‘aid’ and we have seen this with speed suits and neoprene bottoms underneath speed suits. These are left in transition and so we can check the calf sleeves are worn throughout the event. The swim must be unassisted and as elevation of the legs is the most demanding. If an athlete is unable to swim without calf sleeves because of an injury, the argument is that they should not be swimming. There is now adequate provision within rule 1.1.O for a competitor that wants to wear a full ‘sun safe’ suit. Competitors have the option to put on the calf sleeves in T1.
  12. Surely all the ironman branded gear would have clued him up.
  13. Weren't even men enough to do it personally, it was reported that they got their lawyers to offer the "apology"
  14. Or similarly make a list of all the things that need doing around the house, all those crappy jobs you have been putting off ..... if that doesn't make you want to go for a ride nothing will
  15. It does say "prize money races" so I'm not sure if that means ra ra that have prize money that they have entered or races in which they have earned prize money.
  16. Do you even read bro? It says Week 24
  17. This is all inclusive, not just from challenge
  18. Im no legal expert, so not sure how much of a case you woudl have or what the cops would even do, other than maybe a warning. So Id weigh up what you would be hoping to achieve versus what personal toll it will take on you (stress, anxiety etc) I don't think anyone likes seeing a rude bully get their way, but if the end result is nothing more than a wrist slap he might think he has had an even bigger victory by getting under your skin as well.
  19. I think its US $$
  20. Funnily enough the original indicators were that more visors would be required, yet I have sent out more caps so far. Original numbers on the thread were 19 visors 15 caps, luckily I ordered 50 of each as caps are over 25 sent out already and visors just a few behind. From the original list there are still, I think, a few to be allocated so it wont leave many spares. Oh and I need one or two as well
  21. If there are any lurkers out there that want a visor or cap but were wondering how to get hold of them...... BLOODY LOG ON GET A NAME AND JOIN IN or email me at roxii(at) transitions.org.au and I can sort you out.
  22. It actually says "one size fits most" so that comment is a bit "ruff"
  23. Yes, a hypocrite of hermits.
  24. Ok so the garage is almost ready for me to start using and I was going to get my bike set up for Zwift. I dont have a kickr (yet) so its a fluid trainer and a power tap hub. I lost all our old/ spare laptops and tablets in the "great tornado of 2015" so I will need to buy something new to run zwift so I canb have a dedicated setup so Ideally after the cheapest laptop I can get that will adequately run Zwift, anyone know what will do the job??
