Last weekend three of our Open competitors Wes Gould, Georgia Singleton and Ella Garrett traveled to Tugun SLSC on the Gold Coast in an attempt to qualify for the Nutri Grain Iron Series. With only 7 places on offer, the racing was fast, the program grueling, but the experience gained was key to a great weekend. Well Done crew for taking on the challenge. With 85 Males competing Wes finished in 49th position on the ladder, while in the girls Georgia finished 24th with Ella close behind in 27th out of 44 female competitors.
Manly LSC would like to congratulate Manly competitors Naomi Scott and Emily Doyle on both being successful in the trials and qualifying for the series.
During a post race interview, Naomi commented on how it was a difficult choice to leave Sydney and shared a Big Thank you to Manly for looking after her for the past 10 years and that she wouldn’t be where she is today without us.
