Success at Kingscliff Tri

BYRON Tri Club had an amazing day at the Kingscliff Triathlon recently.

Following on from club successes at Yamba, some of the crew stepped up to a sprint distance and managed podium finishes.

Again it was Matt Slee, Paivi Hanninen and Deborah Fuller who earned the club points for the Triathlon NSW North Coast Interclub competition.

Conditions were very hot and windy but that didn't deter these talented athletes.
