2XU DUathlon – St Kilda + Pier to Pub Results!

Posted on by in Category: Blog

Comprehensive Program Strategies

Our squad fired on Sunday at 2XU race 3. Two overall race wins, AG race wins, AG podiums and first time success. The reason why our athletes succeed so regularly is comprehensive and flexible planning. While a large portion of the racing community were grappling with the changes from Triathlon to Duathlon yesterday, our athletes were ready to execute, regardless of the unique race conditions placed upon them. It’s a credit to the coaches and the athletes alike.

Performance Diagnostics and Implementation

Amanda Wilson took line honours yesterday in the OD race with a dominant performance. We have all watched as this athlete has transitioned from AG racing into  fully fledged professional racing. Her performance gains this summer are no surprise to the people behind the scenes. The last 12 months has seen Amanda complete an overall training and racing audit that forced change in her programming and is now delivering the performance gains we all hope for as athletes. Kudos to Amanda for a well planned and thought out winter of preparation work. Also big wraps for Amanda as she enters the world of coaching on a traineeship with ETPA. Amanda just coached her sister to a 7th in AG in the sprint yesterday. Congrats!

Notable mention to Declan Dooley, taking his first overall win in the sprint event yesterday. Declan turned on the leg speed in the second run to put 10 seconds into the field and in doing so stands himself on the top step. Congrats Declan!
