BACK TO BACK WINS FOR EMMA TAKING OUT THE AUSSIE CHAMPS ELITE SPRINT TRI TITLE
It was a day that saw the Championships switched to a Duathlon after poor water quality (following the Gold Coast’s week of rain) gave race organizers no alternative but to replace the 750m swim with a 2.5km run and adding it to the 20km bike and five kilometre run.
Emma locked up her second victory in as many weeks, adding the National Sprint title to her Oceania crown won last week in Devonport ahead of Queensland pair Courtney Gillfillan and Katinka Von Elsner-Wellsteed
“It was good to go back to back. I wanted to show that I could back up and even without the swim, my favourite part, was great,” Jeffcoat said.
“I got into the mindset of that’s racing. It could happen at any level, the same rules apply, you’ve got to be adaptable and get on with it.
“There was some really strong competition, in the U23’s, which is exciting. Great to have those girls push me along today.
“There will be no rest for the wicked, straight back into training. I will have next weekend off racing and then get ready for Mooloolaba World Cup.”
We can not wait to see what Emma brings to the table in the World Cup!!!
