THE sound of the bell, the roar of an adoring crowd and the splash of little limbs hitting Airlie Beach's famous Lagoon - it was certainly a sight to behold.

Juniors of all shapes and sizes took part in the three age group races; each event completing a swim, bike and run section.

Medals were then presented at the finishing line by triathlete super stars Sam Betten and Emma Carney.
