Henry in good condition after camp

TRIATHLON

WHITSUNDAY triathlete Luke Henry is continuing to refine and improve his skills after attending an excellence camp at the Runaway Bay Sports Centre on the weekend.

It was the first time Henry had taken part in an excellence camp and joined 15 other young athletes at the camp

"It was a lot different to what I thought it would be like," he said.

"There was a lot more intense training."

"It was good though because we looked at what I needed to improve on and they gave us athletes a guide to help us improve."

The excellence camp was a practice run for Henry's next event the Runaway Bay Super Sport Weekend will be held at the centre in December.

While Henry was disappointed with his swim efforts at the camp he said he now knew he had to increase his kilometres in the pool when training.

He said it was hard sometimes to get through all of the training.

"I train with my best mate James Cameron who mentors me along the way," he said.

"It's good to get an older persons perspective on the sport because it's hard to get motivated sometimes.

"I also want to thank Steve Jackson who got me into running."

Despite a health scare in Henry's last few events, he said he felt he was in good form.
