Luke heads south for sprint series

TRIATHLON

WHITSUNDAY rising star Luke Henry will be competing at the Super Sprint Series this weekend at Runaway Bay on the Gold Coast.

This will be Henry's first time competing in the series.

The young triathlete took part in an excellence camp at the Runaway Bay Sports Centre last month and will use that experience to hopefully record some great results.

"I'm looking forward to seeing how I compare to the other kids," he said.

"To finish in the top 10 would be nice."

Having stepped up his training in preparation for the event, Luke said he was looking forward to the junior triathlon season starting up this month.

"The junior season runs from December to April and I'm feeling pretty good about it," he said.

"I'm not as fit as I would like to be, but I think I've got a really good chance.

"By the time the school championships start I should be able to kick a few people off the ladder."

Luke will compete in three events on both Friday and Saturday before he hopes to feature in the finals on Sunday.
