AustralianSuper Corporate Triathlon
Power Tynan entered six teams to compete in the AustralianSuper Corporate Triathlon, which was held on Saturday 30th April at the Gold Coast. Each participant was required to complete a 400m swim, 10km bike ride and 4km run. Congratulations to everyone who participated!
Our very own Dan Cuthbert competed in the Half Iron Man triathlon at Port Macquarie on Sunday 1st May. This event involved a 1.9km swim, 90km cycle and 21.1km run.
Dan had set himself a goal to complete this event within 6hrs 15mins, and smashed it in a time of 5hrs 50mins!
He is now looking forward to the Full Iron Man next year, which is double the distance.
