In June this year, after spending a week at the AIS for my Performance Coaching course where we’d been learning about para-triathlon among other things, Jonathan Goerlach serendipitously reached out and asked if I would be interested in racing with him in the PTVI-2 para-triathlon category.
One of the best parts of my job as a coach is getting to help others achieve their goals in the sport, so I was more than willing to join Jono on his journey towards his goal of reaching Tokyo 2020 Paralympics. Triathlon is inherently a individualistic sport, and through this experience I have learned first hand the necessity of communication, teamwork, understanding, and the value of a good partnership when it comes to reaching your goals.
It’s been only a few short months but so far we’ve raced the following:
Hills Sprint Triathlon 2nd place
ITU WTS Edmonton Canada 1st Place
Townsville Sprint Triathlon 2nd place
ITU WTS World Championships Gold Coast 5th place
