Secondary Schools Duathlon

New Zealand Under 16 national triathlon champions Morgan Flanagan (Cashmere) and Quade Mclachlan (Rangiora) won the Canterbury Secondary Schools Duathlon Championships in differing fashion at Ruapuna on Sunday 26th July. Flanagan pushed clear on the opening run leg and tines to push further ahead throughout the race in convincing fashion from Lola Bryson-Boe (CGHS). Meanwhile the boys race was a tightly contested affair with a group of five Canterbury Triathlon Academy athletes (Art Aiken (Christs College), Ben Airey (Lincoln) Henry McMecking (Cashmere) along with Quade & Ethan McLachlan (Rangiora) forming early on the bike. The group started the final 1.9km run leg together with Quade McClachlan edging out McMecking in the finishing chute by 1 second.
