Fluid athlete Laura Torres by any measure has had a massive year results wise in Triathlon, becoming a World ITU Champion and NZ National Champion and winning overall female at both 70.3 Cairns and Western Sydney.

Good days, bad days… regardless which way it went you must learn from both.  Good days learnings are sweet, bad days are deeply imprinted in your mind.    There’s something inspiring about Triathlon that keeps me gravitating towards it.  The concept of “triad” goes beyond the obvious Swim-Bike-Run triad to a subtler Physical-Mental-Spiritual triad.

2017 was a year to forget health wise for me. Going from never having had a health scare in my life to having two major episodes in the space of 2days and a serious bike accident requiring surgery was a bit of a shock. Once the dust had settled following months of rehab and many many visits to the great people at the Alfred Hospital in follow up tests monitoring my health, I g ...

Its been 9.5weeks since Lukas Hoffman broke his collarbone after being blown off his bike in atrocious race conditions at the Portarlington triathlon back in March. Next weekend Lukas races the Kraichgau 70.3 in Germany.
