Multi-talented kids

The duo came third and first, respectively, in the 12-14 years female class at Lake Hayes. Two hundred kids took part – about the same turnout as for the previous day’s Southern Lakes Women’s Triathlon and Duathlon, also at Lake Hayes, where Queenstowner Jordan Davignon finished second in the open triathlon – pipped by just 54 seconds by Wanaka’s Joanna Williams.

Davignon turned around and finished fifth overall at Sunday’s Paradise Trust Triathlon – a fundraiser for the historic trust.
