Devonport was hosting a few events this weekend including a Paratriathlon World Cup race, sprint distance.

Tony was happy with his performance after switching back from IM70.3 and Ironman to sprint distance in the past two months. The 30-35 knots wind had him going at 45-48km/h in the tail wind over the six laps of the bike course. For those who don’t know, he doesn’t have the use of his right arm to steer the bike in TT position. It made it tricky going around corners and holding the bike with the side blows… “I scared myself a few times but managed to control thankfully.”

A stand out performance came from  Queensland’s PTS5 athlete Josh Kassulke who was the first competitor across the line in another impressive performance he hopes will take him to the Paralympics in Tokyo in 2020 in an all Aussie podium with Dale Grat second and Tony Scoleri third.

While Tony made up some ground in the bike and run, it wasn’t enough to bridge the deficit he had from the swim. It was encouraging to him to be in close contest  with the other guys. Head to his athlete’s page if you wish to see the video of that ‘champagne shower’, or below.
