Year 8 JMC boys excelled at the recent primary and intermediate triathlon held at Port Chalmers.
This was the first time the event had been held at Port Chalmers and the athletes were faced with a tough run and bike leg. About 400 children from 33 schools competed in the event. John McGlashan College entered four teams and five individual competitors across the year 7&8 age groups.
All boys competed well but a special mention goes to Grayson Westgate and Max Kirkwood who finished 1st and 2nd respectively in the Year 8 Boys race.
The year 8 team of Calvin Ruru, Peter Sewell and Oscar Lobb also had a good day. Calvin started well putting the team in contention with a strong run. Peter followed this up with a very strong bike and led the field as he handed over to Oscar. Oscar finished strongly in the pool to claim the win, finishing over a minute ahead of their nearest competitors.
